Free and open to the public – free parking
Make plans now to take a break from holiday shopping and Thanksgiving leftovers. Bring friends, family and visiting relatives to a world-class research Institute and get first-hand experience with science aimed at extending healthspan – the healthy years of life.
Talk to individual scientists about their work, enjoy “The Scientist as Artist” exhibit and peer through microscopes to see the model organisms under study at the Buck.
Every half hour we will have a science experiment in our Learning Center for children of all ages.
There will be special presentations in the Drexler Auditorium by our faculty at 11 am, noon, and 1 pm:
Julie Andersen, PhD, will talk about her work on Parkinson’s disease with a special emphasis on the “exposome” – environmental factors that impact aging and disease.
Henri Jasper, PhD, will discuss recent research that suggests having a healthy gut will be key to living a long healthy life.
Judith Campisi, PhD, will discuss the good-guy/bad-guy persona of a process called senescence and talk about “inflammaging” – one of the most exciting avenues of inquiry in age research.
Free popcorn, cocoa and science art projects in our cafeteria! RSVP’s would be appreciated, but are not required. Please e-mail, learningcenter@buckinstitu
