    Unraveling the mechanisms of synapse formation and axon regeneration: the awesome power of C. elegans genetics

    Model organisms, in particular the roundworm C. elegans, have played an instrumental role in understanding nervous systems, including synaptic formation and how neurons respond to injury. Studying them has allowed researchers to develop tools and techniques to study the nervous system in ways that are not feasible in humans or other large mammals. Dr. Yishi Jin, professor of neurobiology and of cellular and molecular medicine at UCSD, will share how the insights gained from this research is being applied to understand human genetic variation, illness, and injury, and develop treatments.


    The Bankers Hill Club features an accessible facility, including accessible parking spots and bathrooms.

    Sunday Assembly San Diego is a new radically inclusive non-religious community that meets monthly to hear inspirational talks, connect for service projects, sing songs and generally celebrate life. Assemblies are free to attend, and everyone is welcome.

    February 2020 Assembly

    One often hears of the ways that religions promote climate denial or justify people’s right to wealth and privilege. More recently, however, some of the world’s religions are finding resources within their traditions to support climate justice and care for the earth. Professor Philip Clayton will share with us examples of faith-based communities working constructively together with environmental scientists. The partnerships that result can contribute to environmental activism, decreasing the tensions between religious and ecological thinking and forming fascinating and sometimes unexpected new alliances. Philip Clayton studies the relationships between contemporary science and the world’s religious traditions. A professor in Claremont, CA, he is the author or editor of several dozen books and the president of the Institute for Ecological Civilization (EcoCiv.org).
