CICATS Science Cafe Series: A Kavli BRAIN Event

Each month CICATS hosts a Science Café with our partner the Kavli Foundation. Science Cafés are events that take place in casual settings such as restaurants and coffeehouses, are open to everyone, and feature an engaging conversation with a scientist about a particular topic. Attendees do not need to have a scientific background to participate. Bridging the scientific community and the community-at-large is a priority for CICATS. We hope to see you at one of our events. 

If you are faculty at UConn you are invited to host a Science Café. Complete the online planning form and read our event guidelines.

For more information about Science Cafés, please contact Dr. Kevin Lo.
