Science Cafe Nov. 16: Design Biological Systems the 'Lego' Way

Science Cafe at Morrill Hall is a casual, educational and entertaining monthly series for adults, exploring a variety of science and natural history topics. Each month attendees can enjoy food from Raising Cane's while hearing from scientists and researchers.

The last event for this fall takes place on Thursday, Nov. 16, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. This months topic is "Design Biological Systems the ‘Lego’ Way" with Rajib Saha, Assistant Professor, Department of Chemical & Bimolecular Engineering, University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Legos are a popular children’s toy but did you know they also serve as a great analogy for biological systems? Many of the most complex challenges facing humans today, pollution control, plant and animal protection, and food safety can be tackled using a “lego” or building block approach! Dr. Rajib Saha will discuss the design process of biological systems to achieve a desired goal.
