Join us for monthly informal discussions with scientists and experts on interesting science topics!
Manchester is taking part the international movement to bring scientists and community members together to discuss science topics that are relevant to everyone. Science Cafes and Science Pubs are a popular way to become informed and to to engage with a scientist in an informal setting.

Doors open at 5:30pm
Events will be held on the second Tuesday of each month.

The War Against Viruses & Bacteria
We will discuss the progress that has been made on the battlefront against harmful viruses and bacteria here in the U.S. and the rest of the world. We will investigate how these enemies move through our society. Warfare is always changing; what efforts are being made to combat mutating viruses and bacteria? What is happening on the front lines today?
The discussion will be led by a panel of local experts including:
Patricia Halpin Associate Professor of Biology at UNH Manchester
Tim Soucy Public Health Director for the City of Manchester
Dr. Christine Rosenwasser, a pediatrician from Dartmouth Hitchcock
If you know ahead that you will be attending, please RSVP on Eventbrite.
