LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 14, 2014) — The University of Louisville is hosting another month of ‘Beer with a Scientist’ at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 16 at Against the Grain Brewery, 401 E. Main St. During the event, Leah Siskind, PhD, associate professor of pharmacology and toxicology, will present “Everyone is Aging: So Why Haven’t We Found a Scientific Cure?”

The Beer with a Scientist program is now in its third month and is the brainchild of University of Louisville cancer researcher Levi Beverly, PhD. Once a month, the public is invited to Louisville’s Against the Grain brewpub for exactly what the title promises: beer and science.

Beverly created the monthly series as a way to connect with people who don’t have scientific backgrounds but want to know about scientific topics. “We lose sight of the fact that most people have never even met a PhD, never talked to one,” he said. “(However) whenever I go someplace, if I strike up a conversation at a bar and I tell someone what I do for a living, they always have questions. It leads to a whole conversation.”
