Science on Tap: Contagious diseases

Submitted by Michi Tobler

Held in a relaxed setting, Science on Tap features a brief, informal presentation by a K-State scientist followed by lively conversation. The goal is to build the community's enthusiasm for science in a fun and unique way. Science on Tap is organized through a partnership with the Graduate School, the Center for Engagement and Community Development, Sunset Zoo, and Tallgrass Tap House.

The free, interactive program begins 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, at Tallgrass Tap House, 320 Poyntz Ave. Be sure to let the Tap House staff know you are there for Science on Tap.

October's Science on Tap features Sabarish Indran, postdoctoral fellow with the diagnostic medicine and pathobiology department in K-State's College of Veterinary Medicine. Indran's research focuses on highly contagious diseases that are not currently found in the United States, but could have major economic and human health consequences should they ever reach our borders.

Science on Tap features a short introduction to the scientist's research, time to engage with fellow attendees around the research presented, then the event wraps up with a conversational Q&A period.

The final Science on Tap for the fall semester will be Nov. 15.
