Nerd Nite — Dwarfism

Please join us on Wednesday, November 19th at 7PM as UCLA postdoc Michael Weinstein presents “The Genetics of Skeletal Dysplasias” at the Mint on Pico Blvd. The evening includes two other “nerdy” but fun talks as well. We have very limited seating available for LA-area postdocs at Michael’s booth. If you’re interested, read on.

Nerd Nite is a monthly event featuring fun talks tailored for a general audience and presented in a relaxed and casual atmosphere (full event description). Event tickets ($10) can be purchased though the event website which also includes summaries of this month’s presentations.

Michael has generously offered to seat a small number of LA-area postdocs at his six person booth. Note that you will be responsible for purchasing your own tickets from the event website as well as any food and drink. To inquire about this opportunity, please contact SoPS Outreach Co-chair Anjie Zhen at azhen at mednet dot ucla dot edu. Note that entrance tickets for this event are expected to sell out.

We’re also looking for postdocs interested in speaking at future Nerd Nite events. If this could be you, write us at outreach at postdoc dot ucla dot edu with a 2-3 sentence summary of your proposed topic. Please also write us if you tried to sign-up using the webform on the SoPS website; due to a major bug that we are still working though, all data entered into the webform has been lost.
