CINSO and the Center for Inquiry of Indiana co-host the monthly lecture series “Cafe Inquiry.” This month, Broken Beaker is joining in the fun for a special fundraising event. Proceeds from sales during the event will be donated to CINSO! We will also have special activities before the lecture:

5pm: Cocktail and Networking Hour

6pm: Distillery Tours and Drinkable Strawberry DNA Cocktails

7pm: Cafe Inquiry Presentation and Discussion

 

Presentation:

Even though over a 100 years have passed since Alzheimer’s disease was first described, clinicians have very few medications that have shown any impact in treating this disorder. My talk will attempt to underline the lessons we can learn from our failures.

 

Speaker Biography:

Nipun Chopra is a PhD candidate studying the microRNA regulation of proteins implicated in Alzheimer’s disease. In his spare time, he loves to talk about science; play, watch, and podcast about soccer; and take his beautiful doggie, Octavia, for long walks so that she can combat the rising tide of squirrel crime in Indianapolis.
