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). We have been featured in Princeton Alumni Weekly.

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.

To join our Princeton Diversity Discussions email list to learn of upcoming gatherings across the United States, please email Princeton Diversity Discussions Founding Director Jenny Korn '96.

A Little About American Classical Orchestra

The ACO, under the direction of Thomas Crawford, is one of the nation’s leading period instrument orchestras. It is dedicated to preserving the great music literature of the Baroque, Classical and early Romantic eras. The Orchestra recreates the sound world of the masters using priceless historic instruments, as well as era-specified performance techniques. Comprised of the world’s top period instrumentalists, the ACO provides audiences the opportunity to experience classical music in the way it was intended to be heard, and in a venue with exquisite acoustics and ideally suited for the repertoire. We are very fortunate to have such a gem in the New York area. Fellow Princeton classmate Mae promises a great experience. More information about the ACO is available on www.aconyc.org.

“Frontiers in Commercializing Fusion Development:

The New Landscape of Companies Investing in Fusion Worldwide”

 

The 2010s saw a tremendous proliferation of private nuclear fusion companies.  There may be dozens:  including five stand-out leaders and a burgeoning host of intermediate companies.  Though not yet within our grasp, the promise of fusion energy remains obvious.  Clean, limitless power plants could:  halt deleterious global climate change; and free us from polluting, extractive industries and the resource conflicts they engender.  But what makes these companies think they can succeed where 60 years of research from world governments have not?  And, how are they now leveraging governmental support to accomplish this?  Our speakers will survey this rapidly evolving landscape and the technical and financial investments that are driving its development.

6 P, TUESDAY, December 10th, 2019

Speaker:  Greg Matzat

Engineer and Offshore Wind Consultant

 “Harnessing Ocean Winds to Generate Clean Energy for NJ & the US”

 

Since 2016, northeast states in the US have committed to build 20,000 MW of offshore wind on the continental shelf --- enough to power every home and business in New Jersey.  Governor Murphy has set a goal of 3,500 MW of offshore wind by 2030; and this past June, the NJ Board of Public Utilities announced the winner of its first offshore wind solicitation:  Orsted’s Ocean Wind --- an 1,100 MW project to be built off Atlantic City. Offshore wind turbines dwarf those seen on land. The newest rise more than 850 feet above the water and have blades longer than football fields.  Their foundations may be “bottom-fixed” (to the seafloor) OR float. Greg Matzat, past manager of DOE’s Offshore Wind R & D program, will bring more than 30 years’ experience in marine and clean energy technologies to our discussion, ranging from construction to markets to policy.  In particular, he will plunge us into some surprising pros and cons of offshore wind, relating to:  the market for this clean energy source; the design of the turbines, foundations and balance of plant; how the huge turbines are actually installed; and responsible approaches that simultaneously serve the interests of electric customers; stewardship of the environment; and  the creation of good-paying jobs.
