10/30/2002 - WSU Spokane Science Research Fair

Urban Legends --- those myths that sound just plausible enough that when repeated sufficiently often are assumed to be true. One of those myths is that Spokane has no research university and no research is being done in Spokane. WSU Spokane is going to put that myth to rest at their first science and research fair on Thursday, November 7. The research fair is free and open to the public.

The all-day research fair will include a featured lecture, research seminars, technique seminars, and a trade show featuring more than forty research equipment and supply vendors. The event will be held in the Health Science building at 310 N. Riverpoint Blvd, beginning at 10 a.m. and closing after the evening featured lecture.

The trade show will feature the very latest in instruments, equipment, and supplies along with demonstrations on their use. “This event will give researchers ideas for new and different ways to approach their investigations,” says Sylvia Oliver, assistant director of WSU Spokane’s Health Research and Education center. “It’s a networking opportunity for people from different places in Spokane --- higher education and industry.” The trade show will be on the third floor of the Health Sciences Building.

At 7:00 p.m., following a reception, Lisa Shaffer, PhD, Research Professor, WSU Spokane will give the WSU College of Sciences featured lecture. The title of her lecture is “Robertsonian Translocations: Chromosome Behavior and Human Evolution.” Dr. Shaffer is in the WSU Spokane Health Research and Educations Center and WSU School of Molecular Biosciences, and is co-director, Sacred Heart Medical Center Cytogenetics Lab.

The research seminars begin at 11 am in Room 110D and run throughout the day.
