EnviroThursday - “Viva La Vulva: A Story of Mice, Women and the Things That Get Under Our Skin”

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Thursday Nov 15, 2018
Olin-Rice Science Center 250

Speaker:  Devavani Chatterjea, Professor of Biology, Macalester

Devavani Chatterjea is an immunologist with a current research focus on the environmental immuno-toxicology of chronic pain.  She uses bench science, art, movement and metaphor to understand the nature and outcomes of inflammation – why, when and how we respond to the world and how the stories of those encounters get written into our individual and collective bodies.  She will share her group’s recent work exploring how a common household preservative may be the key to understanding the origins of unexplained chronic pain.

Refreshments provided.

This EnviroThursday is co-sponsored by the Environmental Studies and Biology Departments.
