Kopchick is Distinguished Professor & Goll-Ohio Eminent Scholar Biomedical Sciences  at Ohio University.

Kopchick will lead a discussion about “the good, the bad and the ugly” of having either too much or too little of growth hormone in the body. He will dispel the myths and welcome the facts surrounding its physiological actions. Kopchick also will discuss the counterintuitive data that decreasing growth hormone action can extend lifespan and reduce age-related diseases, such as diabetes and cancer.

Science Café events are held on Wednesdays at 5 p.m. in the Front Room at Baker University Center. They are free and open to students, faculty and staff. Science Café is a venue for students to share their interests informally during a conversation exchange in a friendly setting.

The Science Café is hosted by Dr. Sarah Wyatt, Professor of Environmental & Plant Biology and Vice President of the Ohio University Chapter of Sigma Xi, and Roxanne Malé-Brune, Director of Grant Development and Projects in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Creativity.

Science Café and Café Conversations are sponsored by the Office of Vice President for Research and Creativity and the Ohio University Chapter of Sigma Xi.
