UCR Science Lecture Series

Riverside series

Every great scientist has a story to tell. A distinguished chemist and dean, an eminent nematologist and chair, and two Nobel Laureates from the fields of physics and chemistry discuss how they started as first-generation college students and went on to become leaders and change-makers. Both the science and stories behind the science will be explored.

6:00 – 7:00 pm

Every time you breathe in, you inhale fungal spores. These spores are so tiny that they can travel on the wind for hundreds of miles. In fact, it’s one way that fungi move around. Most spores won’t hurt you, but some can cause a pneumonia-like disease called valley fever. Valley fever has recently become a “silent epidemic” in Central California, Arizona, and other areas with hot and dry climates. Could climate change help valley fever fungi move to new places like Southern California? We are studying the link between valley fever fungi and climate to answer this question. Moreover, we are developing early warning systems in the U.S. and Mexico for valley fever. Health care workers could intervene earlier in valley fever cases, and possibly avoid new infections. Climate change is one of the great challenges facing our society, but we hope our research helps you breathe easier.

Reservations are requested!

Parking is $10.
