About us


Established in 2011, Life Science Cafe is organized by a group of scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Each month we invite different experts in a field of life science to discuss their research passion with the local community. People of all ages enjoy our informative and accessible cafes. We host Life Science Cafe once a month during the academic year, and we also have a “Science Buzz” summer series. All events are free and open to the public!

Are you a grad student interested in science outreach and communication? Would you like to be involved with planning future cafes? If so, we’d love to have you on our team! If interested, please fill out this form with your name, email, and program.
