TEDxUniversityofNevada is set for Friday, Jan. 24, in the Joe Crowley Student Union Theatre at the University of Nevada, Reno. With the event program complete, 21 presenters are scheduled, including two University of Nevada, Reno faculty members and three University students.
Aucoin’s talk will focus on the challenges of diagnosing infectious diseases in resource-poor settings. He will highlight some of the work at the University to develop rapid and inexpensive diagnostic assays for these settings.
AuCoin has three active research grants through the National Institutes of Health. Two additional grants were recently secured through the Department of Homeland Security and the Naval Research Laboratory. All these projects rely on the identification of secreted or circulating microbial antigens that can be targeted for diagnosis of disease.
Unlike most presenters, who will be speaking at the event, Epstein will offer a performance.
Paul Kline and Kristin Stith plan to set the record straight about small towns with bad reputations. These two University College of Business MBA students have worked together, along with a team of other community leaders, to build the Biggest Little City initiative.
