The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
The Lawrence is getting ready to re-open. We’ll see you on October 30th!
For over 50 years, The Lawrence Hall of Science has been at the forefront of science education.
On a visit to The Lawrence, students collaborate to investigate new ideas as they become scientists and engineers for a day.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
Grab an after-work beverage of your choice for a fun night of science, trivia, and socializing with two budding UC Berkeley researchers.
Representation in Research: The Case of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder & Heart Disease

The Good Side of Viruses: Engineering Viruses for Therapeutic Development
Ana Carneiro, Dept. of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, UC Berkeley
The rate and prevalence of heart disease is increasing worldwide. Although the link between post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and heart disease has been heavily studied in military populations, a thorough assessment of this relationship in other populations has not been conducted. Using this relationship as a case study, this talk will discuss disparities in research and its consequences, for public health and beyond.
While many viruses are harmful to humans, there are some types that can actually be beneficial. Viruses that are not known to cause disease in humans can be harnessed as delivery vehicles for potential therapeutic treatments of a wide range of illnesses. One such “good” virus is adeno-associated virus (AAV). In this talk, we will learn how AAVs can be developed into highly effective delivery vehicles.
