Science makes our world more livable and humane
Dr. Bob Eisenberg, Rush University
4:30 – 5:30 p.m., Quinlan Life Science, LSB 142, LSC

The focus of this presentation is a small but important part of biology where numbers matter - molecules with tiny holes of diameter about 0.0000000006 meters.  These channels control how we taste, see, and think about things. Dr. Eisenberg will show what we know about these channels and how we are trying to make them work better.
Sponsored by the Department of Mathematics.
