Marin Science: "Not Your Mother's Genes: How Maternal and Developmental Plasticity Shift Climate Change Responses in the Eelgrass Sea Hare" with Richelle Tanner, UC Berkeley's Integrative Biology

Richelle is a PhD Candidate in UC Berkeley's Department of Inegrative Biology. She utilizes community ecology, population genetics, biomechanics, and physiology to answer questions about climate change effects in Phyllaplysia taylori, an estuarine sea hare living in eelgrass beds. Specifically, she is interested in how new populations of P. taylori colonize San Francisco Bay eelgrass restoration sites, as they play a large role in eelgrass ecosystem health. Her current work investigates maternal effects of temperature on larval development, latitudinal trends in thermal tolerance, and local adaptation. She also work with many types of Eastern Pacific nudibranchs and sea hares investigating similar questions. Prior to coming to UC Berkeley, Richelle finished her undergraduate degrees in environmental studies and jazz studies at the University of Southern California. Her undergraduate research projects investigated secondary productivity in subtidal eelgrass beds on Catalina Island, CA and the effects of historic climate change on temperature trends and the urban heat island effect in cities along the western edge of the United States.

Finance and Philanthropy for TL Senior Class

Before our seniors head-off to new endeavors beyond TL, they will have the opportunity to learn about financial literacy and philanthropy in a two class workshop, sponsored by Amanda Weitman, Senior Vice President, Wells Fargo Private Bank and Marin Community (MCF) Foundation. Financial literacy will cover the nuts and bolts of personal finance, budgeting, understanding your personal banking, and how loan decisions are made; as well as, understanding what a FICO score is and what it means. Our Philanthropy class lead by MCF explores the historical context of philanthropy and the  role philanthropy plays in society today. What is philanthropy? How is it practiced? And what are the benefits to the giver and the receiver? Students will wrap-up with a real-world example of philanthropy in action which will end with the granting of $1,000 to a local nonprofit organization. This will be the second year of this enrichment program generously supported by Amand Weitmand and Marin Community Foundation.

"DNA Sequencing and Cancer"with Brad Stohr, M.D. Ph.D. Marin Science Seminar Presentation: “"DNA Sequencing and Cancer" with Brad Stohr MD/PhD, Assistant Professor, Dept Pathology, UCSF

Topic description TBA

Brad Stohr MD/PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology at UCSF. His laboratory studies telomeres and telomerase in human cancer. In addition, he serves as an attending physician on the autopsy service.

Previous Presentation: “Why do Cancer Cells Grow Forever and Can we Stop Them?” Download the flyer here. (April 17, 2013)

Unlike normal cells, cancer cells can keep proliferating forever. This "immortality" allows cancer to spread through the body, causing destruction and often death. In this seminar, Dr. Stohr will discuss how cancer cells become immortal and how we might be able to treat cancer by targeting their immortality.

"Where are the Crabs Going? - Using Math to Predict the Future of Our Oceans" with Alma Yesenia Ceja of the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies and SFSU

Global warming is causing marine animals to change their range, which can lead to devastating consequences for the ecosystems they enter and exit. The good news is we can predict how and when these changes will occur by creating what’s called a model. Models can be used to predict the future distribution of an animal population. I will talk about how I created a model using basic math and ecology concepts, and how I used this model to predict the future! 

Alma Yesenia Ceja grew up in Bakersfield, a central California city with a desert climate. She often longed for the bay weather from her grade school years spent in Monterey Bay. During her studies she developed a special relationship with heat and its effects on physiology. As a marine thermal physiologist, she has the opportunity to explore both interests during her master’s research at San Francisco State University. Alma is also a Teaching Associate in the Biology Department of San Francisco State, as well as a research associate at the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies.

Although wood smoke conjures up fond memories of sitting by a cozy fire, wood smoke can be dangerous to our health, much like cigarette smoke. Wood smoke contains carcinogens among other harmful chemicals. Tiny particles called fine particulate matter can get deep into our lungs and bloodstream. This talk will describe the various ways the Air District applies math and science to measure wood smoke pollution in our air and how residents can help reduce their risk.

Marin Science Seminar Presents: "The Physics of the Perfect Paper Airplane" with John Collins, Guiness World Record holder

Marin Science Seminar Presents " The Physics of the Perfect Paper Airplane" at 7:30pm in Room 207.

Paper airplanes have become part of an important movement in the 21st century. It's called "making". Some people want to couch the movement as a rejection of television, video games, and mobile devices. That's upside down. Look at Makers. They don't reject anything. They consume all of that and then start using it for their own purposes. They are up to their elbows in the technology and loving it. Paper airplanes have the scientific method built in. They beg you to experiment. The hope of the world is in the hands of scientists. We need all of them we can get. We have no spare brains on the planet. Join us to learn about and experiment with the physics of the perfect paper airplane.

John Collins is the Guinness World Record holder for paper airplane distance. His love of paper airplanes has taken him around the globe. He has been invited to fly planes on four continents, and for some of the biggest companies in the world. His corporate clients have included Google Zeitgeist, Intuit, and Genentech, while his educational clients include Stanford and Rice universities, Carnegie Mellon, the Exploratorium, Maker Faire, and well as institutions around the world. John has appeared on all the major U.S. news television stations, as well as on Conan, science programs, and in numerous print media.

Marin Science Seminar: "What Really Killed the Dinosaurs" with Courtney Sprain of UC Berkeley's Dept. of Earth & Planetary Science

dino.jpg

Ammonites, pterosaurs, plesiosaurs, and most famously, dinosaurs, are just a small percentage of the 75% of species that went extinct at the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary. What caused this mass extinction? Was it a giant meteor impact? Massive outpourings of lava and gas? Or something else all together? Join Ph.D. student, Courtney Sprain, as she walks you through the very Berkeley-centric history of the of the mass extinction at the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary and how current UC-Berkeley scientists are employing new techniques to further understand what really killed the dinosaurs.

Courtney Sprain is a graduate student in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley. In addition to her work at the Berkeley Geochronology Center with Paul Renne on late Cretaceous Earth history, Courtney Sprain works on the records of late Mesoproterozoic paleogeography and paleointensity from the North American Midcontinent Rift in the UC Berkeley Paleomagnetism Lab.

Marin Science Seminar: The Science and Treatment of Depression with Tobias Marton, MD PhD of SCSF and VAMC SF

Join us for a dIscussion on treatment approaches for Major Depressive Illness by a UCSF and VAMC SF researcher and psychiatrist.

Dr. Marton grew up in Berkeley, California. He received his BA in Molecular and Cellular Biology with an emphasis in neurobiology at UC Berkeley and attended the Medical Scientist Training Program at UC San Diego School of Medicine where he completed his MD and PhD in Neuroscience. After medical school, he went on to complete his residency training in psychiatry at UCSF and subsequently conducted research as a fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Vikaas Sohal studying the neural circuitry of the prefrontal cortex and how it may go awry in severe mental illness. Currently he is a faculty member in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry and provides clinical services at both San Francisco VA Medical Center and UCSF Medical Center. His current area of interest is in using neurostimulation techniques such as ECT and rTMS, as well as other novel neuroscience-based strategies, to treat mood disorders including major depression and bipolar disorder.
