Media calendar: Science cafe, bioengineering open house

January 10, 2014



Jan. 15, Wednesday -- The Davis Science Café presents Dean Tantillo, professor of chemistry, who will speak on "Balls and Springs and Quantum Things: Computational Chemistry and Molecules Made by Trees." Tantillo uses computers to study organic chemistry. This informal talk will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Crepeville on the corner of Third and C streets in downtown Davis. The Davis Science Café meets monthly and is a casual, open-to-the public forum for scientists to explain what they do, answer questions, and otherwise engage the general public in a conversation rather than a lecture. The program is hosted and organized by Jared Shaw, associate professor of chemistry.

Jan. 15, Wednesday -- The UC Davis Department of Biomedical Engineering will hold an open house and launch event for the Translating Engineering Advances to Medicine prototyping facility, including speakers and equipment demonstrations. The event will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. in the lobby of the Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility building. The next generation of medical tools and devices will incorporate engineered molecules and organisms, and the TEAM facility offers both UC Davis researchers and the regional community facilities for designing and building such "hybrid" devices, for example those that include both electronics and biological elements. The objective is to speed commercialization of freshly developed technologies by providing state-of-the-art facilities for students, faculty, and local businesses to realize their designs as working prototypes.
