Sac Science Distilled

Wednesday, January 16, 2019
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Streets Pub and Grub
1804 J St. Sacramento
21+ event, FREE TO ATTEND

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 will be hearing from two scientists who work on modeling the heart. Aiyana Emigh will be talking about the difficulty in predicting which drugs will harm the heart and using models to identify key structural features in many drugs with a range of known safety levels. Divya Kernik will be talking about how to understand the heart more thoroughly using computer modeling in order to better predict responses to diseases and medications.

See you there!

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 speaker is Prof. Denis Marcellin-Little in the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine who studies 3D printing in orthopedics for animals.  Invite a friend, and get here early to grab a seat at G. Street Wunderbar. Let’s drink to science!

Abstract: Advances in medical imaging, in computer processing speed and software, in 3D printing, and in machining have been dramatic over the last 15 years. These advances bring opportunities to capture and evaluate the geometry of bones and joints and to fabricate replacement parts after bone loss. Veterinary medicine is at the forefront of this revolution. Dr. Marcellin-Little has pioneered 3D printing in orthopedics since 2002. The presentation will review progress made over the last 15 years and describe current research and therapy that leverages 3D printing for companion animals.
