Science Exploration Series: "New Developments in Fighting Tuberculosis"

-

Location: 101 Jordan Hall of Science

Jeff Schorey

Tuberculosis (TB) takes the lives of approximately 1.4 million people per year. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria responsible for TB, is the leading cause of death by a bacterial pathogen. This presentation will discuss why this pathogen is so deadly and what approaches Notre Dame researchers are using to develop better vaccines and diagnostics to combat TB.

Science Exploration Series: "Radioactivity in the Environment: What's the Risk?"

-

Location: 101 Jordan Hall of Science

Amy Hixon

Uranium and thorium are naturally-occurring radioactive elements that are widely distributed among rocks and minerals.  However, most actinide elements are present in the environment as a result of nuclear weapons production and testing, nuclear fuel disposition, and nuclear fuel cycle accidents (e.g., Chermobyl, Fukushima Daiichi).  These actinide elements pose a long-term environmental concern due to their toxicity and long half-lives.  In this talk, Professor Hixon will discuss what the Environmental Radiochemistry group is doing to understand and predict actinide mobility in the environment.
