    • China's Age of Discovery

      Jun 10
      9:00AM – 10:00AM
      Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona Hall | Room: 114 — 1 Prospect Street

      Valerie Hansen, Stanley Woodward Professor of History

      China’s long history as a powerful agrarian state has distracted many from its very real engagement with the ocean. Its contacts with South and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and East Africa date back to the year 1000 and even before. Drawing on information from shipwrecks, maps, and descriptions of voyages and foreign lands, this talk traces China’s long engagement with its maritime neighbors, a topic of particular importance given China's recent expansion into the South China Sea.

      Environmental challenges today are more acute than ever, and not likely to decrease with the growing global need for resources to support human society. What is the role of a university in addressing these issues, how is that changing at this particular time in national history, and how is the Yale School of the Environment contributing to solutions?

      Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona Hall | Room: 114 — 1 Prospect Street

      Sten Vermund, Dean and Anna M.R. Lauder Professor of Public Health; Professor of Pediatrics

      The past three years have confirmed and extended findings and prior predictions on the climatological changes consequent to greenhouse gas release.  In his talk, Dean Vermund will review selected climatological highlights, discuss mitigation efforts, and bridge these challenges to implications for human health. Serious consequences of global climate change are resulting in adverse health effects. Hence, the presentation will address strategies for adaptation to planetary warming, loss of species diversity, and human population growth.

    • Biomedical Engineering, Medicines of the Future, and Pivoting During a Pandemic

      Jun 10
      10:30AM – 11:30AM
      Sterling Law Buildings | Room: Levinson Auditorium — 127 Wall Street

      W. Mark Saltzman, Goizueta Foundation Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Chemical & Environmental Engeineering & Physiology

      In this talk, Professor Saltzman will describe the role of engineering in creation of medicines of the future. Over the past two years, for example, we have seen the introduction of nanoparticle vaccines that were rapidly developed from concept to testing to deployment. But even more is on the horizon, such as nanoparticle-based treatments for brain tumors, targeted correction of genetic diseases, transplants that are invisible to the immune system, long-lasting, safe prevention of UV-mediated DNA damage in skin, and inhalable vaccines.
