Arntzen Grand Challenges Lecture Series: Understanding and combatting the pandemic coronavirus

October 29, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm


The coronavirus pandemic has upended society and dramatically changed the face of scientific research. This unprecedented global shift towards the singular goal of understanding how this novel coronavirus works and how to stop it has contributed to a remarkably rapid and deep understanding of the viral lifecycle. In this context, Glaunsinger will describe the latest findings on how SARS-CoV-2 slips past our cells’ barriers, hijacks the cellular machinery, is amplified to form new progeny virions and escapes detection by the immune system. Glaunsinger will also highlight the viral components that are targets for therapeutic interventions and vaccine design, whose degrees of success may ultimately define the duration of this pandemic.

About the speaker:

Britt Glaunsinger, PhD
Professor, Departments of Plant & Microbial Biology and Molecular & Cellular Biology, University of California, Berkeley
Class of 1963 Endowed Chair, University of California, Berkeley
HHMI Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute

State of Incarceration Summit

October 28, 2020 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

The ASU Center for Child Well-Being in collaboration with the Academy for Justice, the School of Social Transformation, the Center for Justice and Social Inquiry, and the Center for Imagination of the Borderlands, are hosting a virtual State of Incarceration Summit on Wednesdays throughout October focusing on: the carceral state as a system, education, supportive programs and policies as well as advocacy.  We have three very exciting keynotes:  Sylvia A. Harvey, author of The Shadow System: Mass Incarceration and the American Family,  Chesa Boudin, District Attorney of San Francisco, and just announced today, Noel Candelária, Secretary/Treasurer for the National Education Association. 

Each year it becomes more apparent that we need to examine incarceration in totality with focus on not just the impact of incarceration, but provide space across disciplines to hold conversations on the carceral state as a whole from disproportionality, systems, race, and economics.

More information on the summit, including RSVP info, agendas, and discussion times, can be found here:  https://childwellbeing.asu.edu/incarcerationsummit
