This event is being organized by the folks at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and I have more details from the March 14, 2023 SFU Café Scientifique announcement, which includes a reminder about two upcoming Café events (received via email; Note: I have made some formatting changes),
Dear SFU Café Scientifique friends,
Join us for our next events this March/April! Zoom invites will be
sent to those who register. All these events occur online via Zoom
NEW: If you have any questions related to the topic, please reply to
this email and send these to us in advance. We will include your
questions in the discussion. We hope to see you then!

I have a few more details about the SFU Nobel Lectures on March 22, 2023 (from the event registration page),
We recognize the contribution of the 2022 Nobel Prize awardees in chemistry, physics and medicine/physiology. Experts from these fields will highlight the impact of these prizes and the connection between fundamental and applied research.
This is a chance for even our aspiring scientists to grow their understanding of our world through scientific pursuits and conversations with a community of professors, researchers, and students at SFU.
This year’s presenters include:
Dr. Corina Andreoiu, Professor, Department of Chemistry – faculty host/emcee
Dr. David Vocadlo, Professor, SFU Department of Chemistry
‘Chemistry in a snap: simple yet powerful chemistry for everyone’
Chemical reactions used to make molecules are typically performed by expert chemists in highly controlled conditions. But revolutionary “click chemistry” now makes it possible to easily snap together two molecules in nearly any environment – transforming research into the discovery of new drugs and materials.
Dr. Kero Lau, Assistant Professor, SFU Department of Physics
‘Quantum 1: Einstein 0. The quantum world is indeed strange.’
The uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics left many people, including Einstein, wondering if our understanding of the sub-atomic world is faulty. The seminal experiments conducted by this year’s Nobel laureates show us that quantum uncertainty is, surprisingly, not a result of ignorance but a fundamental property of our nature.
Dr. Michael Richards, Professor, SFU Department of Archaeology
Professor Richards will lead discussion of Nobel Prize winner Svante Pääbo’s contributions to the field of ancient DNA studies and, in particular, his and his teams’ research into Neanderthal genomes.
