From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Ashlee J. Choi Sent: Monday, January 23, 2012 10:38 AM To: ‘email@example.com’ Subject: [GlobalHealth] 1/26/12 – Global WACh/Bioengineering Seminar
The UW Global Center for Integrated Health of Women, Adolescents, and Children (Global WACh), the Department of Bioengineering, and the WH Coulter Foundation are pleased to present the Winter Quarter seminar series:
“Bioengineering Solutions to Improve the Health of Women, Children & Adolescents”
Global WACh challenged clinical and bioengineering researchers to identify the major problems affecting the health of women, children and adolescents, and to pose novel solutions to address these challenges.
This 10-week interdisciplinary series will involve joint lectures and discussion. During each seminar the clinical researcher will outline a global health challenge facing women, children and adolescents, and the bioengineer will discuss innovative solutions offered through novel & existing technologies. Each seminar will be followed by audience questions and discussion, and a short networking reception. These receptions are a great opportunity to meet researchers and form partnerships to apply for the seed grants.
Last week’s seminar: We were very sorry to cancel last week’s seminar with Dr. Dilys Walker and Dr. Colin Studholme. We are currently working to reschedule this and will send information as soon as we have a date confirmed.
This week’s seminar: Microbicides to reduce HIV-1 infections in women – Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo and Dr. Kim Woodrow will discuss the difficulties in preventing HIV-1 infections in women and the potential for microbicides to combat this.
Thursday Jan 26, 4:00-5:00pm, N130A, Foege Building. Reception Sponsored by the Coulter Foundation to follow.
