Exciting short talks on cutting-edge topics by young researchers at UC Berkeley. Grounds for Science is a public science talk series organized by and featuring UC Berkeley graduate students.

Embryonic development: how cell choreography shapes animals with Mark Khoury

Just as the collective movements of many dancers are needed to perform the choreography in a ballet, the collective behavior of many cells is required to perform the movements that shape our bodies during embryogenesis. Amazingly, the complex shapes and patterns of many animals come from a spherical, single cell embryo. Come learn about how embryos develop and the cellular dance that makes us human.

Kind of Green… but we need Somethin’ Else with Christopher Poresky

For a long time, supplying electricity has been dirty but predictable: easy to orchestrate and control. Now, with high levels of clean but capricious wind and solar connected to the grid, we’ve got a lot more dynamics to manage. The old rules don’t apply and the times are a-changing. We’ve been designing a new class of nuclear reactors designed to keep the grid grooving cleanly and reliably. Come out and bring your thoughts about all things energy – we’ll discuss the birth of some other very cool applications of these new technologies, too.
