This networking event is for Minneapolis-Saint Paul AAAS members and science enthusiasts wanting to make personal and professional connections in their local community both inside and outside their own disciplines. Over the course of this year AAAS will be launching a series of these local events in cities around the world.
Our special guest speakers for this Minneapolis-Saint Paul event are AAAS member Julie Bartley, a professor of geology at Gustavus Adolphus College, and AAAS member Stephen Hecht, a cancer researcher at the University of Minnesota's Masonic Cancer Center. Bartley studies the early record of life on Earth, about 1-2 billion years ago when microbes (mainly bacteria and algae) dominated the seas. Hecht is looking to understand the mechanisms by which carcinogens are metabolically activated and detoxified in humans. They will open the evening event, giving short lectures on the latest research in their fields.
Following the lectures, we will be holding a cocktail reception, giving you the opportunity to network with the speakers and other attendees.
Join us for a night of stimulating science and great conversation.
