Science on Tap Summer Series: "The Science of Light!"

"Science on Tap!" aims to make science accessible to everyone. We will bring a diverse set of speakers studying a range of research topics from Cornell into the community who will present their research in an authentic but also engaging and understandable way.

During our special “Summer Series” sessions you will hear from two early-career scientists who are actively involved in the latest and greatest research going on just up the hill as they explain how their studies relate to real world issues.

So, come grab a drink, sit back, relax, get informed and join us this month for "The Science of Light: beaming up advancements in technology and medicine!" with:

Mengran Wang, PhD Candidate in Biophysics
“Illuminating the brain: invention of the three-photon microscopy to study the brain!”


Dr. Maxim Shcherbakov, Postdoc in Applied and Engineering Physics
“Bending light for a brighter future: manipulating photons for supercomputing!”

Brought to you by: Graduate Women in Science Cornell & Northstar House

Funded by: Cornell's GPSAFC, Cornell's Office of Postdoctoral Studies, Cornell BEST & OISE.
