Our guest speaker, Megan Hochstrasser, Ph.D., is a CRISPR expert and professional science communicator with the Innovative Genomics Institute, and her mission is to bridge the gap between researchers and the public.

We’ve come a long way since Darwin first introduced his rudimentary theory of evolution. Scientists have recently learned how to modify an individual’s genome. CRISPR, an acronym for a description of nucleotides on certain stretches of DNA, is the new earth-shaking genome-editing tool that does this.

Join us for socializing, sing-along songs, a reading, our exciting guest speaker, a member's Doing Your Best talk, and Life Happens announcements! Ben Yep will be hosting!

Sunday Assembly is free and open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted. Please celebrate life with us!
