Science Café Las Vegas, supported by the UNLV College of Sciences, is an organization geared towards bringing fascinating science discussions to the public of Southern Nevada.

We invite scientists to give short (~10-15 minute) presentations to the public at our fantastic venue, McMullan's Irish Pub, and then have roundtable discussions about anything you could possibly wish to know. Science Café Las Vegas is on the first Wednesday of every month from 6:30-8 p.m.

Come on down to the pub for lively science discussion, delicious brews, fantastic food, and a great time! Family friendly (under age 21 allowed).

"Investigations of Alzheimer's disease pathology and potential therapeutics"

 

Our research is primarily focused on understanding the mechanisms responsible for the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. In our projects, we specifically focus on how the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease develops with particular emphasis on inflammatory signaling in the brain. These same projects are directed at identifying therapeutic targets for the treatment of AD.

Arrive at 6:30 p.m. to dine and hang out.
Talk begins at 7 p.m.
