This monthly series of casual scientific discussion is back! Think & Drink is like a TED Talk, but enhanced with alcohol. Each month, someone with a deep understanding of a particular scientific field will provide insight into their field, research, or related topic. Presentations are informal and discussion is encouraged. This month's presenter: TBD [[If you or someone you know is interested in being a presenter, please message The STEMcell Science Shop or email email@example.com.]] Must be 21+ to attend.
