MANCHESTER, NH – The SEE Science Center’s adult science discussion series, Science on Tap, is starting a new season on October 2 with the topic of regenerative medicine. Science on Tap is held at Stark Brewing Co. in Bo’s Lounge and function room, 500 Commercial St., Manchester, on the first Tuesday of each month from October through June.  Doors open at 5 p.m., the discussion begins at 6 p.m. Admission is free, but advanced sign up recommended using this Eventbrite link: http://bit.ly/SotOct2

Last season goals and challenges of the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI) were discussed, and the industry they are building here in Manchester.  This year the discussion will dig deeper into the biology and technology that are being married to push this field forward. A greater understanding of the human body and its functions has created the foundation for this new industry. Discuss the underlying biology that researchers are trying to replicate and how technology is changing to meet the challenge. Panelists for the discussion will be Jay Hoying from ASI Life Sciences and Derek Morris, from United Therapeutics.  Both companies are members of ARMI and have locations in Manchester.

Science on Tap events are informal discussions with local scientists and experts on a particular topic.  Science on Tap is a program of the SEE Science Center in partnership with UNH Manchester & Stark Brewing Co.   Participants are welcome to order from the food and beverage menu during the event.
