Scott Asakawa with NOVA Education invites us to the next CafeSci Boston at the Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge. This month’s speaker is Brian J Abraham. Brian earned his PhD from Boston University in Bioinformatics before taking a position as a Postdoctoral Associate in the lab of Richard Young at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research. By day, he’s a lab scientist researching stem cell gene expression. By night, he blogs as “The Snarky Scientist (Karaoke Competitor),” where he combines a great amount of insider knowledge about science with a healthy dose of humor and “snark.” You can find him dishing out pearls of wisdom and humor on twitter as @SnarkyScientist.
Join us at Middlesex where Brian will talk about his current research, and also give his take on the current states of science and science communication. As always, he’ll be happy to answer questions from the audience as well. It’s sure to be a fun night, so come out with your friends, grab a drink, and get ready for a good time.
See you there!
CafeSci is a series of science cafes around the country produced by the folks at the PBS NOVA television series. They're bringing scientists and cutting edge technology entrepreneurs to present their work to the public in a fun and social format, over food and drinks.
Presentation starts at 7:00 - get there early tho to find seats and socialize with fellow nerds. Your organizers will be there around 6:30, and will be wearing Meetup pins so folks can find us.
