Join us for this month's Science by the Pint, as Dr. Richard Losick and colleagues present Are We More Microbial than Human?

For those who've never been, Science by the Pint is an event sponsored by an organization of Harvard graduate students called Science in the News.  In between their sleepless hours of hard work at Harvard Med School, they bring cutting edge scientific research to the public in a fun and informal format.  The event goes like this:

• The main speaker gives a short 5-10 minute talk (not a full length lecture) about their research, then answers general questions from the audience.

• The team of colleagues comes around to individual tables and spends one-on-one time answering questions over food and refreshments.

• Lots of nerdy fun is had by all.

Things officially start at 7:00, but arriving by 6:30 allows fellow nerds to find each other and sit together, order food and drinks, and be ready once things get going.

The Burren is located on Elm Street right in the heart of Davis Square, just a short walk from the Red Line stop.  If you prefer to drive, there are metered spots on the street and in nearby municipal lots (see link below).  Meters are active until 8:00 PM, and metered spots are free thereafter. Municipal lot meters are good for three hours, and street spots are good for two.

Hope to see you there :)
