American Scientist Pizza Lunch
American Scientist magazine's "Pizza Lunch" speaker series invites Ph.D.-level scientists from area universities and research institutes to give talks about compelling research to science journalists and science communicators in the Research Triangle region.
The series, one of the 20-plus Exchange Groups supported statewide by NCBiotech, is designed to expand scientific understanding among people professionally engaged in explaining science, especially biology, to others. Since it was established in the late 1990s, it has also served as a networking opportunity for people engaged in science communication at many institutions in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Research Triangle Park.
Can't make it? Pizza lunch talks are now being broadcast live on Periscope! Check the @Amscimag twitter feed on the day for the link. If you watch on a phone/tablet, you can ask questions live and we will relay them to the speaker.
Free pizza and beverages are provided before and during the talk, though it's on a first come, first serve basis. RSVPs are required (for the slice count) by registering for a free ticket through Eventbrite.
Thanks to a grant from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center and funding from the RTP chapter of Sigma Xi, American Scientist's noontime Pizza Lunch speaker series is free and open to science journalists and science communicators of all stripes, as well as any interested member of the public. Feel free to extend this invitation to anyone who might want to attend.
