Event description

Description

From May 20 to 22, scientists and researchers across 24 countries will be sharing their discoveries with the general public over a beer in their local pub or craft brewery. Join us!

Kwantlen Polytechnic University's (KPU) Brewing department will be hosting two events — one on May 21 at Trading Post Brewing and one on May 22 at the KPU Brew Lab brewery, both in Langley.

The concept is for researchers to host lively, interesting and relevant talks on the latest science in an accessible format to the public. Pint of Science allows people with no science background to learn about and discuss research with the scientists who conduct it (and have a beer with them!).

There will be trivia games, Q&A and prizes, too! Both events are free to attend but guests are required to pre-register and are responsible for purchasing their own food and alcohol.

— Pint of Science Langley 2019 —

>> MAY 21 | TRADING POST BREWING <<
Doors open at 6:00 pm | Event from 6:30-9:00 pm
Speakers:
Mika Mokkonen, PhD | Why do we get sick?
Throughout human evolution, we have frequently faced many challenges to our health. In the modern era, we understand much about how we get sick, but few people consider the reasons for why many diseases and disorders persist. This talk will explore key features in the evolution of the human species that have led to some of the most pressing health concerns facing our society today.
Michael Harder, PhD | A new spin on magnetism: Recent progress in the development of nanoscale magentic devices
The fascinating properties of magnets have been used for millennia, beginning with the use of loadstones for navigation in the 11th century. Today magnetism is fundamental to modern electronics, medical diagnostics and our basic understanding of the universe. But after centuries of research, is there anything left to discover? Yes! Michael will open the discussion by summarizing the history of magnetism, describing recent develops in the study of nanoscale magnetic devices and outlining the future of magnetic technologies.

>> MAY 22 | KPU BREW LAB BREWERY <<
Doors open at 6:00 pm | Event from 6:30-9:00 pm
Speakers:
Nick Inglis, PhD | Cilia and Flagella: More than just sperm motors
Virtually every cell in the human body possess tail-like structures called cilia. In the past decade, research has revealed that cilia are essential to many facets of human health. Individuals with compromised cilia experience deficits ranging from Polycystic Kidney Disease to obesity. In this Pint of Science lecture, Nick will be describing the basic cell biology of cilia, exploring the diversity of cilia in nature, and considering the nature of the relationships between cilia and human health.
Isaac Seo, MSc | What are GMOs and genetic engineering, and how can they cure malaria?
What are GMOs? What is genetic engineering? Find out how they affect your day-to-day life and how they can impact the world by curing a significant disease like malaria.
