Science by the Pint is a free science café in which we invite a Boston-area research lab out to a pub or brewery to chat science over a cold one. The events are geared toward a general audience – all are welcome and no experience is necessary!
This week's event features:
Dr. Lee Rubin
Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology
Tapping into the fountain of youth: Does the key to reversing the aging process circulate within us?
Dr. Rubin’s lab focuses on understanding neurodegenerative diseases and what happens to the brain as we age. The Rubin lab recently discovered proteins in young blood that can increase the production of new neurons and rejuvenate old brains. The ultimate goal of this line of research is to find a therapeutic to protect against age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.
