Each month, Professor Jared Shaw with the UC Davis Department of Chemistry hosts the Davis Science Café, featuring scientists who are studying some of today’s cutting edge topics. This month’s guest is Professor Simon Cherry from the UC Davis Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Radiology who studies molecular imaging. Invite a friend, and get here early to grab a seat at G. Street Wunderbar. Let’s drink to science!

Abstract: This Valentine’s Day, come and see how modern imaging techniques can tell if you have a broken heart. And learn about an imaging technique that involves antimatter. Sounds like science fiction, but it is used in hospitals every day!

Join us for Sac Science Distilled- You’ll hear short, idea-centered talks from local experts in the sciences. After the talk, we’ll have a lively discussion that brings science into context for everyday life.

This month we’ll hear from July’s Sac Science Idol winners Sam Tucci (PhD candidate, Biomedical Engineering Graduate Group, UC Davis) and Sydney Wyatt (Graduate Student Researcher, Integrative Genetics and Genomics, UC Davis).

Sam’s talk will be on “The Fantastic Voyage: Are we there yet?”. She will describe the progress science has made in nanomedicine since the 1960s, when it was first really imagined.

Sydney’s talk will be on “Little fish in a big pond: what can zebrafish say about human health?”. She will be talking about the great applications of zebrafish in research, and how they are a great way to study the basis of some human cancers.
