Exhibit: Life & Deeds of Dr. Shih-Liang Chien

A new exhibit is in town!

As a part of the Living Legends Series, the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum’s newest exhibition focuses on Dr. Shih-Liang Chien, his family, and their precepts, or family rules for living. Precepts are an important part of Chinese heritage, and Dr. Chien's family, from the Chien kingdom, has been following these precepts for generations. The Chien family comes from generations of royalty and scholars in China and Taiwan, and the exhibit explores the family tree with many rare artifacts.

One of his sons, Shu Chien, was SDCHM’s first board chair and is now an award-winning professor of bioengineering and medicine at UC San Diego. He was awarded a National Medal of Science by President Obama in 2011 for his pioneering research on the flow of red blood cells. The museum will welcome him on February 22 during the exhibit opening.

Suds & Science

Oct 14, 2019

Sometimes, the most interesting discussions occur over a beer or a glass of your favorite vino. (Bonus points if you can remember what was said the next morning!) That’s the concept behind Suds & Science, a monthly event that brings scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. Each session kicks off with a short and enlightening presentation, after which the floor is open for discussion between the audience and the speaker. We cover a wide variety of topics that can range from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes. We invite you to come sit back, sip your favorite beverage and participate in the discussion. Suds & Science puts the fun and spirit(s) back into learning.
