COSAM Outreach invites you to join us for our next Science Pub!

This event will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17 in the taproom of Red Clay Brewing Co. in Opelika. No registration is required. Join us to chat about bioinorganic chemistry and some of the metals found in the body with Christian Goldsmith, professor in Auburn's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Goldsmith will be giving a brief introduction to the field of bioinorganic chemistry as well as introducing the general field of inorganic chemistry, summarizing how metals are used by biological organisms. After that, he will illustrate these concepts using four biologically relevant metals.

“I hope that attendees leave the talk with a greater appreciation for non-carbon elements and an understanding that not all biologically relevant chemistry is organic,” Goldsmith said.

Science Pubs are fun, casual events to join in a discussion with a local scientist. Red Clay has great food in addition to their drinks, so feel free to bring the whole family!

Earlier this semester we learned about herpetology and met turtles and snakes with Kaitlyn Murphy from Biological Sciences at Well Red. Last month, we heard from Melba Salazar-Gutierrez from the Department of Horticulture about how coffee plants grow and produce those beans we love so much at Resting Pulse.

Faculty and graduate students who are interested in sharing their science with the public at events like Science Pub can complete this brief survey
