Virtual Lab Notes Sept. 29

Physics and astronomy professor Michael Pravica presents "From Vaccines to Tumors: Utilizing Tuned X-Rays and Electrochemistry to Create High Quality Treatments" at 4 p.m. Sept. 29 via Google Meet. 

When most of us think of vaccines, we think of medicines, liquids and other elixirs that will prevent, or curb infectious disease. Pravica approaches vaccines from a different angle. Utilizing X-rays, lasers and electrochemistry, Pravica is using his expertise to damage the interior of viruses to develop vaccines. His work also explores the use of differential conductivity with electrochemistry, which may prove to be useful in cancer immunotherapy and an efficient means for tumor destruction. Join us as  Pravica shares his work on the cutting edge of medicine.
