Science is brewing at Hancher’s Stanley Café! Science on Tap is an informal forum for UI researchers to engage the campus and the local community in a discussion of science in a fun and inviting atmosphere. Please join us Oct. 19 from 5:30-6:30 pm for Science on Tap during the weekly Thursday Nights at Hancher program.

The first Science on Tap will feature Dr. Cornelia Lang of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Dr. Lang will discuss her research on what is happening at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy with the talk, “What Lurks at the Core of the Milky Way," followed by a discussion with the audience.

Conceptualizing solutions to the opioid crisis
The Daily Iowan - Friday, May 4, 2018
Participants at Hancher’s Stanley Café came together Thursday evening to hear about the opioid crisis sweeping the nation and discuss ways to combat the issue. The evening, which was part of the “Science on Tap” series, featured presentations and small-group discussion on tactics to help with opioid-related issues. The community-engagement event was a follow-up of the “Opioid Ideas Lab” April 9-11, in which 30 academics representing eight University of Iowa colleges gathered to discuss the daunting opioid crisis and ponder potential solutions and strategies.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Hancher in advance at (319) 335-1160.
