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, our speakers will be 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.
