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.

XVth International Workshop Molecular and Cellular Biology of Plasminogen Activation

Location: Notre Dame Global Gateway, Rome, Italy

This meeting has been held in alternate years since 1985, and is unique in that it is almost exclusively abstract-driven.  Therefore, the majority of the presentations are selected from submitted abstracts.  This allows for the emphasis of the meeting to be on new and unpublished research, which fosters productive interchange of ideas between attendees of the meeting.
