    A Deep Conversation with Rita Colwell

    A Deep Conversation with Rita Colwell

    Rita Colwell discusses her pioneering research that led to the discovery of how cholera survives between epidemics. During an open question and answer session, she addresses themes and issues covered in her recently published book, “A Lab of One’s Own—One Woman’s Personal Journey Through Sexism in Science.” Considered a science book for the #MeToo era, Colwell offers an astute diagnosis of how to fix the problem of sexism in science—and a celebration of the women pushing back.

    Neuromodulation: Diagnosis and Therapy for Brain and Spinal Cord Disorders - Exploring Ethics

    Neuromodulation: Diagnosis and Therapy for Brain and Spinal Cord Disorders - Exploring Ethics

    Researchers are exploring the exciting possibility that electrical stimulation of nerve cells of brain and spinal cord could aid in tumor resections, monitor epilepsy, bypass spinal cord injury to cure paralysis, as well as treat other diseases of the nervous system and beyond. Bioelectronic neuromodulation devices are evolving as the gold standard and are projected to impact the lives of millions of people. At UC San Diego, collaborations across engineering and medicine aim to bring the latest technological advances to patient care. Shadi Dayeh, Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC San Diego, covers the development and clinical translation of UCSD’s multi-thousand channel microelectrode arrays to map the human brain and spinal cord. The talk will provide a perspective on global efforts in neuromodulation devices and summarize lessons learned in the technological, medical, and regulatory fronts.

    The Art and Science of Atmospheric Rivers and the Changing Hydroclimate of the West - Impacts of Climate Change in California and The West

    The Art and Science of Atmospheric Rivers and the Changing Hydroclimate of the West - Impacts of Climate Change in California and The West

    California's precipitation regime is the most volatile in the country. These large natural swings between drought and extremely rainy years make water resource management in California notoriously difficult. Global climate change is expected to exacerbate the volatility by decreasing the frequency of regional precipitation while increasing its intensity. Join meteorologist Alexander Gershunov to learn about the mechanisms behind these projected changes, their anticipated impacts on California, as well as how art can help convey the science.  Series: "Jeffrey B.
