Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s (CSHL’s) Cocktails & Chromosomes series is back for the first time since 2019. This fun and free event series brings together CSHL scientists and the public for free-flowing discussions on a range of stimulating topics. Hear why ChatGPT won’t be running the 100-yard dash anytime soon. Or how new salad recipes could help combat climate change. How’s that for barroom chatter?!

The event will be held at Industry in Huntington, NY, at 7 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month. First on tap for June 29 is a talk with CSHL NeuroAI Scholar Kyle Daruwalla. The chat will focus on AI’s energy efficiency—or lack thereof—and what it could mean for the future of our planet.

Get a taste of Cocktails & Chromosomes from the Movember 2019 installment with CSHL Professor Lloyd Trotman.

Next up, on July 27, CSHL Professor David Jackson will lead a tasty discussion on the genetics of corn. Then, on August 31, CSHL Associate Professor Ullas Pedmale will cast plant biology and climate change in a whole new light.

Each event will include a light 20-minute talk from a CSHL scientist followed by an engaging Q&A. All throughout, Industry’s mixologists will serve up some of the most inventive cocktails, mouthwatering wines, and crafty beers on this side of the Nassau-Suffolk border. Limited seating is available first come, first served. RSVP through eventbrite to enter a free raffle.
