Science Cafés are free, informal talks that offer you a chance to learn about the latest research from a regional scientist.

Next Science Café

October’s Science Café is Tuesday, October 27, 2015, at River Ridge Taphouse in Clemmons at 7 pm.

  • Presented By: Charles Tegeler, M.D., Professor of Neurology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center

  • Topic: HIRREM. When faced with traumas or threats, your brain initiates the fight or flight response. If the response for some reason gets stuck, so that later your body is still being driven with those physiological responses, it can lead to various symptoms and even diseases with long enough exposure. High-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring (HIRREM) is a noninvasive, brain feedback technology that may help to “unstick” your brain.

March’s Science Café is Thursday, March 10, 2016, at River Ridge Taphouse in Clemmons at 7 pm.

  • Presented By: Kiran Solingapuram Sai, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

  • Topic: New Imaging Methods for Cancer and Other Diseases. Applications of two important imaging techniques: PET and SPECT will be introduced. The talk includes review of recent developments related to nuclear medicine that will allow the next generation of tracers to be developed and describes how we are incorporating new tracers into clinical trials. The major areas of tracer development that can benefit from several novel PET tracers are oncology, neurology and cardiology.

River Ridge Taphouse is located at 1480 River Ridge Dr, Clemmons, NC 27012
