A researcher found a way to quickly and precisely determine via imaging the borders of cancerous tissue during a surgery in order to remove all tissue with cancerous cells. Another researcher is mapping spectral signatures of some microbes in order to search for life in other planets. What this two subjects have in common? They are both the results of research performed by Brazilians and they are in the Bay Area.
Brazilian researchers in the Bay Area grouped together to form a collective named PUBTechSF, PUB is the acronym in Portuguese for Brazilian University Researchers, Tech is for technology, and SF for San Francisco. This group is dedicated to integrate the Brazilian scientists in the Bay Area with interest on science, technology, education, and culture. They promote meetings regularly that includes seminars with technical and multidisciplinary content submitted by members and the opportunity to network with other like-minded individuals and the Brazilian community in general.
The second edition of PUBTechSF is already confirmed for April 2 at the Center for Educational Research at Stanford (WAX).
