Event Details
5:30 p.m.
Room 110, Eberly Science and Technology Center

 

Dr. Jonathan Boyd, a professor in the C. Eugene Bennett Department of Chemistry at West Virginia University, will discuss a new study that predicts the results of mixing chemical compounds at an “On The Road” meeting of the ACS, the American Chemical Society.

Boyd’s talk begins at 7:30 p.m. April 27 in room 110 of the Eberly Science and Technology Center.

In his presentation “Forecasting the Toxicity of Chemical Mixtures,” Boyd will share a study from the Boyd Laboratory at West Virginia University that demonstrates the potential of a new in vitro approach for the prediction of toxic mixture interactions that is fundamentally driven by the interdependence of energy metabolism, signal transduction and cell survival.

ACS members regional meetings, a buffet dinner and an undergraduate research poster session will be held before Boyd’s presentation. All events are sponsored by the Cal U Chemistry and Physics Department.

Boyd’s talk and the poster session are free and open to the public. The buffet dinner costs $10; reservations are required.

Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance.
