Dear Café Scientifiquers, our next café will happen on Tuesday October 28th, 7:30pm at The Railway Club. Our speaker for the evening will be Dr. Katie Marshall.  The title of her talk is:

Life in the Frozen Lane

There’s a long list of animals that can survive freezing solid that includes animals as diverse as mussels, woolly caterpillars, frogs, and turtles.  How and why do they do it?  What can we learn from the animals that do?  Surviving freezing is a surprisingly complicated process that involves a wide array of biochemical tricks that we humans are just learning how to mimic.  This talk will walk through the basics of how freezing happens, how it can be manipulated, and showcase some of Canada’s best freeze tolerant animals.
