2017 Annual Hitachi Lectureship at AAAS

Societies are now faced with the challenges of a declining population and shrinking workforce due to the emerging demographic trends of falling birthrates and aging societies.  These social issues need to be addressed in order to maintain or improve our quality of life in the years ahead. Under these circumstances, Human Symbiotic Robot and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, which support improvement in productivity, services, and life in the human environment, are proposed as a potential solution. Building upon the history of research and development of these technologies, Dr. Osone will explore the advancement in Human Symbiotic Robot and AI technologies as a necessary part of our future society.

DC Science Café: Extreme seeing and other sensory wonders

Our eyes gift us with access to the colors, shapes, textures, motions, and spatial contexts of our world. Yet the human visual system is just one among many that have evolved under different environmental and ecological pressures. Join sensory physiologist Tom Cronin of the University of Maryland Baltimore County for a discussion about some of biology's most amazing and capable visual systems. Cronin and his colleagues have studied the visual systems of squids, butterflies, fiddler crabs, cuttlefish, primates, dolphins, orioles, reef fishes, sponges, poison-dart frogs, fireflies, octopus, deep-sea crabs, whooping cranes, and mantis shrimp—wondrous and often comedic crustaceans—that rely on their world-record 16 different light receptors (we have four) to make visual sense of their water world.

Humanized mouse models in checkpoint inhibitor development

In recent years, humanized tumor xenograft mouse models have been integrated into checkpoint inhibitor development programs at many pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies as an indispensable part of the drug development process. As these models have improved, they have been shown to support higher levels of human myeloid-derived cells and regulatory T cells, and have been used successfully in recent studies of anti-PD1 drugs in lung, breast, bladder, and melanoma. Join our experts to hear about the latest research developments utilizing these cutting-edge models.
