Science Cafes are science-tech talks given in an informal, fun dining-out setting, an idea of the national science fraternity Sigma Xi. Maybe Americans might actually start believing in science, who knows?
For instance, when you hear about “nanotechnology,” it’s often in the context of science fiction. Micro-robotic Doctor Who menaces, or Star Trek deux-ex-machinas, especially around the USS Enterprise sickbay. What are the real-world applications of nanotech in medicine?
Cleveland’s Science Cafes happen in the Music Box Supper Club in the Flats. That is where Anirban Sen Gupta, a Case Western Reserve University associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, will discuss nanotechnology in controlling blood clots. It seems helpful platelets can be simulated via nanotech. This is here-and-now stuff, not the dreams that Starfleet is made of.
Admission is free, with an optional menu from the Rusty Anchor Restaurant. Doors open at 5:30pm prior to the talk.
