Wherever You Are

Speaker: Andrew Voros, CEO, PrevenTive Conservation, LLC
Topic:  Photocatalysis & Pandemics: Bringing to Light a New Approach

Photocatalytic oxidation is a light-driven process that dismantles organic molecules on treated surfaces. These include human respiratory hazards caused by combustion and those of biologic origin. While standard treatments of chlorine, peroxides and ammonia kill coronavirus on surfaces, the disinfection lasts only until the next person contaminates it. The CDC has recently determined that an optimized oxidizing agent effective on MRSA and other iatrogenic diseases is also effective on COVID-19.  Andrew will discuss these technologies, the science behind them, and the stabilized chlorine dioxide application that his company is making commercially available in the next 30–90 days. 

In keeping with pandemic-generated distancing protocols, PA3 and Quadrangle Club are pleased to bring you our first “online Propeller.” So, fasten your intellectual seat belts, pour a libation and toast to loved ones & learning --- even in the midst of perplexity. 

This video will be posted online as soon as available.  To ensure that you receive notice of that posting, please register here.  For information about Propellers generally, please visit propellers.princetonaaa.org.

First Friday Lunch - March 6,2020

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons


Our speaker this month is Sarah Hutter, a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Psychology.  Her topic will be adult learning and adaptation of skilled movement:

The ground was slippery today and I should have been unstable, but I was oblivious to any disruption as over two hundred muscles stretched and pushed, coordinating in a dance of computation to keep me walking as if nothing was different. Now, as I type, thirty-four muscles control the spacing, movement, and pressure of my fingers on the keyboard, and none of those muscles are in my fingers. I'll discuss the ingenious solutions that the motor system uses to minimize the impact of overwhelming complexity, and how we learn and adapt the motor skills necessary to navigate everyday life. 

Here is Sarah's bio:

Sarah's primary research interest is the learning process in adults. In particular, she examines the role of strategic planning in the early formation of skilled movement. Housed in Psychology and in a joint program with the Neuroscience Institute, Sarah explores the intersection of cognitive psychology and the neurophysiology of movement through behavioral, computational, and neurological experimentation. She expects to complete her PhD defense in 2021, and is currently exploring career options both within and outside of the academy. Sarah is currently on the Executive Committee for the Council of the Princeton University Community and holds a University Administrative Fellowship with the Center for Career Development.   

Priced at $28/person (or $32 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues).  Lunch includes an appetizer, entree, dessert and coffee/tea. Wine/beer offered a la carte - select Enhanced Lunch Ticket on the PayPal button below.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery:  A Transformation in Managing Neurologic Disease --- From Operating Room to Outpatient Treatment

 

Stereotactic radiosurgery, the ability to precisely target lesions with focused radiation beams, is advancing the treatment of neurologic disease.  Complex lesions deep within the brain, which once required high-risk surgeries, can now be treated in a non-invasive manner and on an outpatient basis.  This has been a boon to patients with:  brain tumors; vascular lesions; the movement disorders of Parkinson’s Disease and essential tremor; and pain conditions, such as trigeminal neuralgia --- resulting in vastly improved quality-of-life.  While advances in computer processing and memory storage/retrieval speeds drove some of these breakthroughs, others came from progress in the fields of:   neural networks and neuroanatomy; physics; radiology and robotics.  Our speaker will describe these rapidly-evolving surgical approaches and their prospects for future use in treating myriad diseases, including psychiatric disorders.

Princeton Diversity Discussion, February 21

Please join us at our next Princeton Diversity Discussion, hosted by Marita Martiney on Friday, February 21, 2020, at 6 pm, at Surf Taco Coastal Cuisine in the Princeton Shopping Center, 301 North Harrison Street. (Note this is the evening before Alumni Day.) Free parking is available. Order individually, pay at the counter, and join us at the tables inside; or feel free to come for the conversation without eating. Remember to wear your orange and black so we can find one another! RSVPs are not required, but may be sent to Jenny Korn '96.

Princeton Diversity Discussions is a monthly series of friendly and inclusive gatherings supported by the Association of Black Princeton Alumni (ABPA), Association of Latino Princeton Alumni (ALPA), Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton (A4P), Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3), Princeton Association of Delaware, Princeton Association of New York City (PANYC), Princeton Club of Washington (PCW), Princeton Club of San Diego (PCSD), Princeton Association of New England (PANE), and Princeton Club of Chicago (PCC).

Open to *everyone* (affiliated and not with Princeton) who would like to discuss race-related issues in person,. We invite alumni, students, staff, family, friends, and everyone you think is groovy to join us! So far, we have teamed up with the Duke Black Alumni Association, Harvard Women in Design, and the Harvard Kennedy School's Women's Network to co-host discussions. Hosting involves no financial commitment, only a commitment to selecting a date in the calendar and to choosing a restaurant that the host digs.
