The Newman Catholic Graduate Student Association (NCGSA) sponsors Truth on Tap:
Adult, embryonic, induced, umbilical, and STAP. Some are taken from unwanted embryos, but others hide in inconspicuous corners of the adult body. They may one day cure Parkinson’s or regrow organs, but they’re a difficult, expensive, and sometimes immoral option that is no magic bullet. You’ve heard of stem cells, but how much do you really know about them?
Join us for March’s Truth on Tap at the Sharp Edge Bistro downtown, in the Loft. Dr. Daniel Kuebler, biologist at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio will be speaking on the science of and Catholic moral issues surrounding stem cell research and therapies.
All graduate students, seniors, and young adults are invited!
Suggested donation $10. Appetizers and drink tickets will be provided.
