Science Speaks in Berkeley

"Blood Guts and Glory" forum will delve into the world of UC Berkeley’s Museum of Vertebrate Zoology.


Published:

Science geeks take note: The East Bay Science Café will be hosting a meeting this Wednesday at the Café Valparaiso at the La Pena Cultural Center. This month’s event—entitled Blood, Guts, and Glory: Insight into a Vertebrate Natural History Museum—is free to the public and starts at 7 p.m. The event will focus on UC Berkeley’s Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, which is one of the most active vertebrate research museums in the United States. Monica Albe, a Senior Museum Scientist at the UC Berkeley, will be speaking about the institution in this “day in the life of a museum scientist” talk. Beware: East Bay Science Café warns that this talk may not be for the faint of heart!

The event is part of an ongoing series of talks at the East Bay Science Café that occur on the first Wednesday of every month. The talks are a Café Scientifique style forum for discussing interesting and important scientific issues, with the goal of encouraging public engagements with science by inviting members of the scientific community to present topics for a casual evening of conversation. The East Bay Science Café is presented by the University of California Berkeley Natural History Museums and Science@Cal.
