It’s hard to get things to stick when it’s wet. Nevertheless, many sea creatures secrete robust glues that work underwater. UCSB Ph.D. candidate George Degen will share his research studying the way marine mussels stick to surfaces, which should guide the design of new medical adhesives for use in the human body. Join the fun and friendly conversation, and quench your thirst for knowledge about science and nature at SBMNH’s Science Pub series at Dargan’s. No tickets or reservations required, but be sure to get to Dargan’s early for a seat and to order your favorite drink and food.
