Jamie Young Wise, UofL assistant professor of pharmacology and toxicology, will be discussing the effects of “forever chemicals,” per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances known as PFAS that break down very slowly in the environment.
These life threatening chemicals are appearing everywhere and have been the subject of many news articles, documentaries and even recent movies (see "dark waters" with Mark Ruffalo and Anne Hathaway).
This topic hits close to home and has become a huge issue here in Kentucky.
Organized by UofL cancer researcher Levi Beverly, Beer with a Scientist gives the public a chance to hear about research directly from scientists.
The 30-minute talk is free and open to the public.
