Research On Tap
The Oklahoma State University Division of the Vice President for Research, in partnership with Iron Monk Brewery, is excited to present an opportunity for you, the public, to meet and interact with experts from a wide range of research fields at OSU. Researchers from the sciences, arts and humanities will be joined by Dr. Kenneth Sewell, the Vice President for Research, to have a conversation regarding their work and the impact it has on you and your community. Ample time will be provided for you to interact with the researcher and questions are encouraged in this informal, but informative, setting.
We hope you will join us the third Monday of each month to enjoy some of Stillwater’s own local brew while chatting about some of the impactful and interesting research happening here on the OSU campus. Each session will be approximately 20 minutes of open dialogue between Dr. Sewell and the researcher, followed by questions and discussion from the audience.
For almost two decades, scientists have been touting nanotechnology’s ability to provide life-changing solutions. Unfortunately, it has yet to come to fruition. While we interact with ‘nanostuff’ everyday, like microprocessors in our cell phones, we’ve yet to see the radical impact that some nanoscientists have predicted. Through the course of consuming a beer or two, Dr. McIlroy will help us understand the field of nanoscience, and why he resists from even using the term ‘Nanotechnology’ to describe his work.
We look forward to seeing you at the Iron Monk Brewery Taproom, 519 South Husband, on Monday, August 20, at 5:30 pm.
August 20, 2018 – Dr. Dave McIlroy, Regents Professor in Physics
