DuBois – This year's Umbaugh Lecture at Penn State DuBois will feature Eric Brown, an Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater.  During his lecture, From Bacteria to Cancer: Detecting and Destroying Unwanted Biological Agents with Nanoparticles, Brown will speak about groundbreaking methods for combating some of the greatest health threats of the day. 


Brown's research brings together the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, medicine and environmental science.  He has done extensive work with nanoparticles, which are microscopic particles that can be used to manipulate the structures in human cells, ultimately fighting off cancer and other disease.  


Brown is scheduled to speak from 12:15 p.m. until 1:30 p.m. on Friday, March 25, in the Hiller Auditorium at Penn State DuBois.  The lecture is free and open to the public. 


Brown will be available for further discussions with students and other interested individuals immediately following his presentation from 1:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.


Made possible by the generosity of Robert and Joyce Umbaugh, the Umbaugh Lecture brings highly qualified speakers in the fields of science and technology to the campus each year.
