Thursday, September 18, 5:30 PM; @ the Manhattan Project Restaurant
Be sure not to miss the next installment of “Science on Tap” on Thursday, September 18, at the Manhattan Project restaurant in downtown Los Alamos.
Rashi Iyer will talk about ATHENA—a miniaturized human model with working artificial organs used for testing pharmaceuticals and toxic materials. Finding alternatives to toxicity testing on animals and studying anatomy with cadavers has never been more important as scientists continue to raise questions about the effectiveness of animal response to drugs, and cadavers are in ever-increasing short supply.
The “On Tap” series happens every Thursday evening starting at 5:30 PM, with science on the third Thursday of every month. Other weeks include topics on nature, art, and history. Join us!
This series begins each evening with an informal 10 to 15-minute lecture followed by a lively group discussion. “On Tap” is a way for people to get out and about in the community, learn something new, and meet people with similar interests.
