RockEDU’s Science Cafe Series for High School Students
RockEDU Presents is a teen science cafe series geared to a high school audience.
Join the host of the podcast Scientist Toshiki Nakashige as he interviews Victor Torres, Associate Professor of Microbiology at NYU School of Medicine. We will chat about the Torres Lab’s fundamental science research on the bacterial pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus, as well as Victor Torres journey as a young scientist from Puerto Rico to a professor working in New York.
Toshiki Nakashige is a postdoctoral researcher at The Rockefeller University, where he conducts chemical biology and bioinformatics research to understand host-microbial interactions in the early childhood intestinal microbiome. He earned his Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from MIT and bachelor’s degrees in Chemistry and History of Art from UC Berkeley. He hosts and produces the podcast, Scientist, and its second season will come out later this year.
Mark your calendar for the third Friday of every month! The RockEDU Presents series will be on a regular monthly schedule for all of the 2017-2018 school year.
All events will be on facebook live and archived to youtube! Check out RockEDU Presents’ Youtube channel for past event highlights.
