Science Café focuses on medicines from the sea

By From page A4 | October 04, 2013

“Seabed to Bedside: New Medicines from Marine Organisms,” featuring a conversation with professor Roger Linington of the chemistry department at UC Santa Cruz, is the subject of the next Science Café in Davis.

The discussion will begin at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday on the Wyatt Deck next to the Redwood Grove in the UC Davis Arboretum. If it rains, the talk will move indoors to 146 Environmental Horticulture.

Linington will discuss new and innovative approaches to finding natural chemicals from marine organisms that serve as starting points for the discovery of new medicine.

The Science Café is co-sponsored by professor Jared Shaw and the UCD department of chemistry, with funding from the National Science Foundation. For more information, visit arboretum.ucdavis.edu or call 530-752-4880.
