Description:

The lecture series "Crossing Boundaries, Transforming Lives" hosts a lecture by Carnegie Mellon President Subra Suresh.

In the last decade, developments in life sciences, nanotechnology, genomics, imaging, computational biology
and micro-fabrication technology have created unprecedented opportunities to study human health and
diseases at the cell and molecular levels. Dr. Subra Suresh will present a lecture that provides an overview of his
cross-disciplinary research into infectious diseases, hereditary blood disorders and certain types of cancer.

The lecture is open to the CMU community and a reception will follow.
