Expanding the radiochemical toolbox. Going from diagnosis to prediction

3:30pm - 4:30pm

Dr. Michael Campbell Department of Chemistry, Lakehead University, Thunder Bay, ON, Canada Expanding the radiochemical toolbox.  Going from diagnosis to prediction   The preparation of organic compounds containing radioisotopes for either diagnosis of therapy poses certain synthetic challenges not present in regular synthesis.  In particular the small mass of the radioisotope required for a given activity means that the ratio of starting material to radionuclide is often in excess of 10,000:1. The separation and removal of the labeled product from…

Physics & Astronomy Grad Student Colloquium

4:00pm - 5:00pm

Please join us this Friday for our Grad Student Colloquia: Speaker 1: Cole Treyturik Title: "Using X-Ray Spectroscopy to Determine the Progenitor of the supernova remnant 3C 397" Abstract: " Supernovae number amongst the most energetic events in the known universe, and their remnants are of great importance to both the structure of galaxies and the propagation of most heavy elements in the universe. The supernova remnant (SNR) known as 3C 397 is a peculiar object, and the origin of its progenitor as either…

Dr. Sarah Gretton, University of Leicester, Public Lecture “The State of Interdisciplinary Science Education in the 21st Century”

10:30am - 11:10am

Lessons learned from an integrated undergraduate science education Abstract It is an interesting contradiction that despite increasing shifts towards interdisciplinarity across scientific research, the typical curricula of undergraduate science degrees are based around the Victorian science classifications.  The University of Leicester (UK) established an integrated undergraduate science programme in 2004, with a mission to develop interdisciplinary scientists with core scientific skills such as problem-solving, data analysis and critical thinking. This talk will reflect on over a decade of experience in…

Dynamics and intrinsic disorder in bacterial protein secretion

3:30pm - 4:30pm

Dr. Gerd Prehna Department of Microbiology, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, Canada  Dynamics and intrinsic disorder in bacterial protein secretion    Bacteria use an array of secretion systems to communicate with each other and to manipulate the environment, including their eukaryotic hosts. The proteins secreted by these secretion systems can be used in self-recognition, proper communication of the human microbiota with the host, or the delivery of toxins by pathogens. Bacterial secretion systems range from individual protein transporters to extremely…
