Join us for robust presentations and refreshing conversations designed to inspire your scientific palate.

Peanuts are great in GORP, play well with jelly, and make chocolate sing and they’re increasingly considered a public health menace. These legumes (“nut” is a misnomer) are one of the most common culprits of food allergies in both children and adults, and among the food allergies least likely to be outgrown. However, scientists are discovering what causes all types of allergies and how to desensitize the body and prevent allergic reactions. Learn about this life-saving, cutting-edge allergy research from Dr. Sharon Chinthrajah, Clinical Assistant in the divisions of Allergy/Immunology and Pulmonary/Critical Care at Stanford and the Director of the Clinical Translational Research Unit at the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research.

The Humidors is committed to groove in all its shapes and forms. Come hear the eight-piece band stir up hard-hitting funk, greasy soul, vintage R&B, soul jazz, and more into an infectious, polyrhythmic stew.

labor of loveCinema Arts: Labor of Love

8:00 p.m.  Kanbar Forum 

Timed for next week’s amorous holiday, this gripping collection of shorts considers love beyond romantic love, and celebrates its everyday expression in work. From a BART attendant whose devotion to making every small interaction meaningful is nothing short of heroic to an obsessive collector whose work led him to save memories others don’t realize they’ve lost, these shorts show the way work can become embedded in our identify and shape the way we view and engage with the world.
