For all we may think we know about the world, humanity doesn’t even quite understand the cranial jello that allows us to type and read words online.

For those interested in how we exist and and why, Dr. Chiara Bertipaglia will be hosting a free talk at Biotech Without Borders in Downtown Brooklyn next month to explain what she knows.

“I will present cutting-edge research about defects in brain stem cell division, human diseases, and potential help that stem cell therapy can provide,” Bertipaglia wrote in the event announcement.

The talk is a partnership between Biotech Without Borders and the organization Know Science, which aims to increase public knowledge in the scientific fields.

We went to last month’s talk in the series and it was terrific. Dr. Sandra Breum Andersen explained the landscape of antibiotic resistant bacteria to an audience of engaged Brooklynites.

Dr. Bertipaglia is a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University Medical Center, where her focus is neurobiology.
