EVENT: European Science Café: “The Substance: Albert Hofmann’s LSD”

We haven’t hosted a European Science Café for a few months now, so we thought it was high time we got one on your calendar and in your diary again! Ready to delve into some science? We thought so! See, this is the perfect event for you!

The Consulate General of Switzerland in Atlanta and the Atlanta European Science Café present:
“The Substance: Albert Hofmann’s LSD”

 

Science Cafe - OCT 2014

When: Wednesday October 15th, 2014
Time: 6:00pm – Doors open at 5:30pm
Where: Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta Auditorium
Admission: Complimentary

What’s it all about?
In 1943, at the Sandoz chemical-pharmaceutical laboratories in Basel, Switzerland, chemist Albert Hofmann, in search of a respiratory and circulatory stimulant, first synthesized LSD.

Swiss writer-director Martin Witz’s “The Substance: Albert Hofmann’s LSD” is an informative and entertaining investigation into the history of a drug so potent that mere fractions of a milligram can alter a subject’s perception of reality.

There will be a couple of discussion leaders too:
Karen Rommelfanger, PhD Neuroethics Program Director, Center for Ethics, Assistant Professor, Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emory University.
Paul Boshears, PhD Candidate, Europäische Universität für Interdisziplinäre Studien, Saas Fee, Switzerland.
And, once your brain has soaked up all this new information you can relax with a wine and cheese reception. We know what you’re thinking and it probably goes something along the lines of ‘that sounds perfect!’ Right?

We look forward to seeing you there!
