Serving Science (The CUNY Science Café)
About SERVING SCIENCE
Science cafés aim to promote scientific literacy beyond the walls of academia.
The science café concept, which started several years ago in European cities, is growing worldwide. The few such cafés around New York City routinely draw standing-room-only crowds and often turn away more people than they can accommodate, demonstrating a need for more such events.
CUNY is well poised to fill that need. In doing so, CUNY will enhance the awareness - locally, nationally, and internationally - about the breadth and depth of leading edge scientific research that takes place within the CUNY system. Beginning in Fall 2008, Serving Science began bringing some of CUNY's faculty to Kouzan Japanese Restaurant to discuss newsworthy scientific topics.
Location: Kouzan Restaurant
Cover Charge: $10. Includes one drink. Seating is limited, so arrive early.
For those wishing to stay for dinner, Kouzan offers a 10% discount after each presentation.
Our bones are a living scaffold that support us throughout our lives and Dr. Mitchell Schaffler studies what happens to them in sickness and in health, in young and old age. In his Bone and Joint Laboratory at The City College of New York, Dr. Schaffler examines fatigue and repair in bone and tendons at the cellular level. His research focuses on how the living cells inside these tissues detect and respond to weakness and damage in the bone structure. He joins us to share his research on how our bodies work to keep us all in one piece.
