As part of its Café Scientifique Series, Bishop’s University invites members of the community to learn more about some of the research that is being undertaken by both students and professors at Bishop’s.
Hosted by the University’s Research Office, the event promises to be entertaining, informative and easily accessible to a broad audience. Five students and five faculty members in the fields of Biology, Business, Chemistry, Education, English, Physics, and Psychology will summarize their research programs in five minutes each. Audience members are invited to complete the accompanying Pub Quiz and enter a draw to win a small prize.
How can research pave the way for a greener, safer chemistry? How do reading skills develop in a bilingual environment? What do chipmunks and pre-industrial human populations in Quebec have in common? Can fasting improve the efficacy of cancer treatments? These topics and several others will be featured in these short talks and Pub Quiz.
Anyone who is eager to learn new things and is invited to come enjoy a beer and interact with the researchers in what will surely be lively and enlightening presentations.
Monday March 21, 7 p.m.
