“Our Biosecurity Mission: From Radiation Biology to the Plague,” a lecture by Dr. Elizabeth Hong-Geller will be the first guest speaker for the Los Alamos Historical Society’s “Frontiers” lecture series. The lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 14 in Fuller Lodge.
Biology research at Los Alamos National Laboratory started with the study of radiation effects on living systems. In the last 50 years, innovation in biology has driven scientific discoveries in animal research, flow cytometry, the Human Genome project, vaccine development and infectious disease.
More recently, as a means to develop our national energy mission, research has turned to bioenergy for the production of renewable fuels from biomass. Hong-Geller will trace the history of LANL research in the biological sciences and then focus on host-pathogen biology and mechanisms of pathogen infection.
