OMSI After Dark
OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry)

Treat yourself to childfree, brain-building science fun at OMSI After Dark! Check out live demos, a planetarium show, Science On a Sphere, SAMSON the T. rex, new featured exhibits, and old favorites. Sample tasty snacks and sweets along with beer, wine, and craft soda, and talk to regional food and beverage artisans about the science behind them. The OMSI Market Cafe will be open with a special dinner menu and cash bars will also be available for those who want more than just a taste! It's geeks gone wild! (21-and-over only.)

Public Lecture at Reed: "Emergence of Ordered Patterns in Physical, Chemical, and Biological Systems"
Reed College (Vollum Lecture Hall)

The Division of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Reed College invites you to a public lecture by Prof. Harry L. Swinney, Sid Richardson Foundation Regents Chair of Physics and Director of the Center for Nonlinear Dynamics at the University of Texas at Austin. Prof. Swinney is one of the pioneering figures in the study of chaos theory and his lab has played a leading role in the study of nonlinear dynamics over the past 40 years. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and his work has been recognized with numerous awards, including the Moser Prize, the Richardson Medal, and the Boltzmann Medal.

From spatial patterns like the stripes on a zebra to temporal patterns like the rhythmic beating of the heart, patterns are ubiquitous in nature. Understanding how these patterns emerge is one of science’s most enduring mysteries. In this lecture, aimed at a general audience, Prof. Swinney will discuss how ordered patterns emerge as systems are driven away from thermodynamic equilibrium. While no general theory of pattern formation currently exists, new analysis techniques, experiments, and computational methods can provide general insights into pattern formation in a diversity of physical, chemical, and biological systems.

PortLab
Old Town Pizza

PortLab is a community project which includes people of diverse backgrounds (students, artists, amateur and professional scientists), attracted by the potential of molecular and synthetic biology, basically anyone wishing to participate in scientific research. Our purpose is to promote citizen science through access to biotechnology and education. Anyone is welcome, so get involved!

We also host a Journal Club which meets regularly to discuss an area of scientific interest using a peer-reviewed scientific paper as the centerpiece. A member will suggest a topic and a research article for the group to read and discuss. Each meeting begins with a summary of the chosen paper followed by lively discussion. This is an interactive event for participants to ask questions, inquire about aspects of the experimental design, comment on methods, and bring a healthy amount of skepticism to the results.

PortLab - Journal Club - Structure of DNA
Ex Novo Brewing Company

Join us to discuss the Nobel prize winning work on the structure of DNA. We'll be diving into the Watson's and Crick's race to discover the source code of life as published in the article "A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid" Nature. 1953. Watson, J.D. & Crick, F.H.C.

Mozilla Science's mini Working Open Workshop
through Downtown Portland and OHSU South Waterfront

miniWOW PDX 2017

Do you have an idea for a project that will help the scientific community or impact the way scientists work? It could be software, an advocacy project, an effort to bring science to the people, or something else entirely. Getting a project off the ground is daunting, and most of us aren’t trained in project management and community building skills.

At miniWOW PDX, Mozilla Science Lab will help you take your project from idea to reality and give you technical, project management, and community building skills to kickstart your work.

We have 10 awesome science/tech community building and tool development projects registered from OHSU, PSU, OSU, and UCSF! We can accommodate about 5 more projects. Multiple people can bring a project as a team, just get us the headcount so we can get enough food and get everyone access to the venues. Registrations accepted through Wednesday 4/12/17. Contact [email protected] with questions. To register, please fill out this form.

How Our Earliest Relationships Shape Our Neurobiology and Influence Our Health - Synapsistic Meetup
Vacasa

Beginning before birth, human development takes place deeply embedded within a biobehavioral system with other conspecifics. The attachment bond that forms between the highly altricial infant and its caregiver not only ensures the infant's survival but is the critical context for the brain development that underpins executive function and self-regulation. Emerging research identifies how infant-caregiver neurobiological synchrony between helps shape this development and how early experiences marked by deprivation, adversity, and trauma influence mental and physical health across the lifespan. In this talk, Dr. Waters will discuss the neurobiology of attachment, the ways in which early experience gets under the skin, and what we can do about it.
