Event Description

Full Description:
The annual TGH Jones Memorial Public Lecture commemorates the late Thomas Gilbert Henry Jones, UQ's Dean of the Faculty of Science from 1942-49 and 1960-61. Our speaker this year is Professor George Whitesides, of Harvard University, USA.

Join Professor Whitesides as he presents 'Simple/Low-cost Bioanalysis for the Developing World and Point of Care'.

This talk will describe exploratory research designed to develop systems based on first-world science to solve diagnostic problems in resource-limited environments, and to provide tools for public health. The work focuses on bioanalytical systems for diagnostics, and includes work on paper diagnostics, magnetic levitation, two-phase polymer systems, and electrochemistry. The program also has an unusual component, in asking what strategies in academic research will be most successful in converting results from university bench science into real solutions to problems in health in the hands of users.

The talk will be followed by a networking session and refreshments from 5.00 pm to 6.00 pm.

To assist with catering, please register through the event website (above) by Friday 24 June 2016.
