  • Bier Brewery 5133 East 65th Street Indianapolis, IN, 46220 United States (map)

Do you know how much the general population effects things as heady as scientific research and as seemingly “every day” like the purchase of booze on Sundays? Well, if you didn’t, listen up! And if you did, that’s amazing… here’s your chance to learn more!


The role of everyday experts in better science

Engagement in research by the public is critically important to improve the relevance, implementation and dissemination of science. I will share my journey in identifying the importance of community and patient engagement. The audience will then participate in an activity to demonstrate how this engagement process might work to address a hypothetical problem (relating to beer), and this experience will be tied back to real-life research problems that patients helped to solve.

Aside from some of the best beer in Indy, Bier Brewery offers a cozy spot to sip quality brews and chat about all things SCIENCE (at least for purposes of this event). While Bier Brewery does not offer a food menu, they welcome their guests to bring something tasty to eat. We love partnering with Bier Brewery! Not only do they serve up an amazing product but they are also open special on Monday just for taste of science. Doors open at 6:30 at 5133 E. 65th St.; talks start promptly at 7.

taste of science Indianapolis is brought to you by Central Indiana Science Outreach in coordination with the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites
