Effects of Human Activities on the Algae of Erie County Streams and Lakes

Dr. Sarah Whorley (Professor of Biology, Daemen College)
The Buffalo-Niagara metropolitan region contains over 1.1 million residents. These populations place a variety of stressors on the streams and rivers that flow into Lake Erie and the lake itself. These stresses can include excess nutrients from urban, suburban, and rural communities, wintertime road salt deposition, and fuel-pollution from leisure activities. Find out how our activities are affecting the base of aquatic food webs in the waters of our region.

Toxoplasma gondii: How Do Cat Parasites Give You Seizures?

Dr. Ira Blader (Professor, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University at Buffalo)
About half the world is infected with Toxoplasma but normally only fetuses and those whose
immune systems become dysfunctional develop disease.  In many cases, these patients
present with seizures and other neurological defects.  My work is aimed at understanding what causes seizures in these patients and to use this information to develop therapies. At Pint of Science, I will tell you about our latest progress and discoveries and how they hopefully will help treat patients.
