More on tomorrow's First Friday Seminar ...

This Friday is another First Friday Science Seminar. We have an interesting talk lined up, so I hope that you and your students will make plans to attend.

Event: First Friday Science Seminar
Location: Carrasco Room, Midland College campus
Time: Friday, April 7th, 12:00 p.m. (noon)
Speaker: Natalia Schlabritz-Lutsevich MD, PhD
Associate Regional Dean for Research
Research Associate Professor (tenure-track)
Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Department of Pharmacology and Neuroscience
Texas Tech University HSC School of Medicine
     Dr. Schlarbitz-Lutsevich work involves studying placenta. The placenta plays an important role in the interface between mother and child. Studying the physiology/chemistry changes associated with the placenta during pregnancy can give clues to the health of both the mother and the child. This research could eventually lead to implanted sensors to monitor these changes and give early warnings for at-risk pregnancies.
Topic: "What Do You Need to Know About Placenta"

Each month during the school year, on the first Friday of that month, Midland College hosts a lecture featuring current topics of interest in the fields of science and mathematics. Each seminar features a working scientist presenting aspects of what their career (and results) are all about, which that will be of particular interest to students ... and to members of the Midland community. Come and enjoy this lecture and encourage others to attend. Please feel free to bring your lunch, to enjoy during the presentation. We hope to see all of you there!
