Brandeis makes science accessible with Cafe Science talks
Popular trend arrives at Brandeis
About 50 people filled a small space at The Elephant Walk restaurant in Waltham Monday evening, many clutching glasses of red wine or colorful martinis. Yet the atmosphere was quiet and restrained, as the patrons gathered not for a post-work cocktail hour, but to learn about Alzheimer’s disease. Amidst clinking dishes and hushed dinners, the small lecture-style lesson on the neuroscience and drug research behind the disease marked Brandeis University’s inaugural Cafe Science - the first in a beta series of three.
