On Febuary 4th the club featured: Dr. Pieribone, A cellular and molecular biologist at Yale University’s School of Medicine and the co-author of Aglow in the Dark: The Revolutionary Science of Biofluorescence. Dr. Pieribone asked:
--What do jellyfish and coral reefs have to do with the human brain and quest for medical cures?
--What makes undersea animals glow?
--How can biofluorescent technology link the human mind with machines?
--What are the latest advances in fluorescent micro-photography?
--And whatever happened to that transgenic, glow-in-the-blacklight rabbit in France?
