Come learn about cutting-edge research from the graduate student community at UC Berkeley in a relaxed, sci-fi-themed cafe setting. This month features short talks by graduate students Jesse Zhang and Justin Ondry.

Microfluidics and the Study of Single Cells - with Jesse Zhang
Our bodies are composed of tens of trillions of cells. Amazingly, recent advances in single cell studies show that no two of them are completely alike. Come learn about the field of microfluidics and how it is leading to new ways of studying single cells.

Seeing Atoms Using an Electron Microscope - with Justin Ondry
We know all matter is made up of atoms, but atoms are so tiny and close together, we can’t see their precise arrangement using conventional microscopes. In this talk, we will first explore just how small and closely spaced atoms are compared to our macroscopic world. We will then learn how, after 80 years of development, we can use electrons to image atoms with unprecedented precision.
