Malcolm Renfrew Interdisciplinary Colloquium: Obsessing Over Chocolate

University of Idaho - CLASS Presenter: Lauren Fins.Historically, chocolate was used in cultural and religious ceremonies. It was used as a means of exchange (like money), consumed as a drink—both hot and cold—taken as medicine, and eaten as a high-energy food, as a luxury food, a confection, and as an important ingredient in flavoring other foods. Inventions during the Industrial Revolution allowed candymakers to mechanize and refine chocolate production. Now some people claim they are addicted to chocolate. But are they really? Professor Emerita Fins will address this question, review some of the natural and cultural history of chocolate, explain how chocolate is produced, and she will dispel some of the myths that have been attached to this “food of the gods.”.

College of Science 20th Anniversary Seminar - Tanya Miura

University of Idaho - SCI Hiding in Plain Sight: How viruses evolve to avoid antibodies Presenter: Dr. Tanya Miura Professor and Chair, Department of Biological Sciences Synopsis: Purified antibodies are increasingly being used to treat viral infections, including COVID-19. However, as we have seen with the many variants of SARS-CoV-2 during the pandemic, viruses readily evolve resistance to antibodies. My lab is part of a collaborative team within the College of Science that is studying how viruses evolve resistance to antibodies. In this talk, I’ll demonstrate how SARS-CoV-2 has evolved antibody resistance and describe the studies our team has performed with respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, and antibodies that are critical for protecting high-risk infants. We are taking novel, interdisciplinary approaches to predict antibody-resistant variants and understand the limitations of viral evolution toward antibody resistance. Tanya Miura is professor and chair of the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Idaho.… SCI Departments: Department of Biological Sciences. Department of Chemistry. Department of Geography. Department of Geological Sciences. Department of Mathematics and Statistical Science. Department of Physics. Colloquia/Seminar/Symposium: Yes.
