Event Details

Cancelled – Nerd Nite North Bay | Novato

Please Note: After two full and fun years of shows, Nerd Nite North Bay have decided to stop doing monthly presentations.

Hang out with smart people and learn some stuff while drinking beer at the Nerd Nite North Bay held on the first Tuesday of the month at Hopmonk Tavern in Novato.

CSI SVU TV (Can’t Science Instantly, Still Very Unsure: Television)

Find a blood spot. Make a wisecrack. Go to the lab. Conclusively confirm the culprit. Prison. If you’ve ever watched Forensic Files or the three dozen CSI shows, you probably wondered if the DNA analysis presented on TV is accurate. Find out the truth as we take a trip into a forensic lab, find out how analysis of crime scene DNA evidence works, and see if it really all fits into a tidy 42 minutes every. single. week.

Understanding how life exists and functions in the space environment has been a necessity since the beginning of space travel. Biology in space remains a frontier to be conquered by scientists, medical doctors, and science fiction writers alike.

Take a tour of the Stem Cellar with the Buck Institute for Research on Aging as your guide. Stem cell breakthroughs lead to a better understanding of cancer and to the development of therapies for Parkinson’s disease.
