Science on Tap: Cannibals and Crazy Cows: The Propagating Prion Protein

July 13, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Science on Tap is an opportunity for conversation, debate and interaction between scientists and the public while drinking beer. Each month at SpeakEZ Lounge, a knowledgeable expert hosts a discussion about scientific current topics such as cutting edge cancer detection techniques, climate change and brewing beer.

This is a great chance to exercise your academic interests in a casual setting while enjoying great food and adult beverages!

This month: Join Guillermo Flores of the Van Andel Institute and MSU College of Human Medicine. You can’t cure them. You can’t kill what causes them. You can’t stop them from killing you once you’re infected. Prion diseases are in a league of their own. Come learn about the fascinating—yet terrifying—set of diseases known as prion diseases, or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.
