ROXRO PHARMA Marks 5th Year Of Cafe Scientifique Sponsorship
Date:4/16/2008

Thousands Have Participated in Wide Range of Scientific Discussions Since

ROXRO Organized Area's First Cafe Scientifique in 2004

MENLO PARK, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- ROXRO PHARMA, Inc. today announced the continuation of its sponsorship of Cafe Scientifique Silicon Valley (http://www.cafescisv.org), an innovative concept that brings together scientists and the general public in a cafe environment for discussions on diverse scientific topics ranging from stem cells to global warming to genetically engineered foods.

"We are pleased to continue to support this innovative forum that brings cutting-edge and topical science to members of our community," said Roger Whiting, ROXRO PHARMA President and Chief Scientific Officer. "Cafe Scientifique has had remarkable success since we began the first cafe on the West Coast in 2004," he said.

The world's first Cafe Scientifique was held in 1998 in England and spawned a grassroots movement that has taken hold in hundreds of cities on every continent around the globe. The informal events are held in a variety of venues worldwide including bars, theaters, churches and other community gathering places.

Locally, ROXRO has been instrumental in organizing the participation of scientific and technology experts and in ensuring a very broad range of topics for discussion. Attendance at the monthly gatherings in Silicon Valley has risen steadily from about 50 initially to over 200 participants, requiring a move to larger quarters provided by SRI International at its headquarters in Menlo Park. "We are pleased to support Cafe Scientifique Silicon Valley and provide a space that accommodates the large number of participants while maintaining the informal cafe environment so essential to an open sharing of ideas and opinions," said Walter Moos, vice president of SRI's Bioscience Division.

"Cafe Scientifique is a place where anyone can come to learn about the latest ideas in science and technology in plain language," Whiting said. "We've had talks as diverse as gravitation and aging, saving whales, the chemistry of chocolate and nanotechnology. Our goal in organizing these monthly events is to make current scientific issues more accessible to the general public while making scientists more accountable to the public at large."

All Cafe Scientifique events are free and open to the public. Events are held at SRI's International Building at 333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park. For more information on Cafe Scientifique Silicon Valley activities, go to http://www.cafescisv.org.
