Science on Tap is a weekly Friday afternoon social where members of the Martinos community gather to eat, maybe have a libation or two, and get to know each other’s work a little better. Every meeting features a 10 to 15 minute talk by a Martinos investigator about his or her latest research, including work in progress, or not yet published efforts, followed by informal discussion over chips and guacamole!
The videos below show many of these presentations, and thus open a window onto the cutting-edge research under way at the Martinos Center.
- Daniel Gomez (07/2019 – present)
- Nikou L. Damestani (03/2022 – present)
- Katherine Maina (03/2022 – present)
