Christianity and Islam grow out of the same Jewish monotheism, but this presentation will focus on three crucial but even less widely known matters: 1) that they are also joined at the hip in other ways too, with the same philosophical tradition and theological language; 2) that, while there has often been violent conflict, there has also been continuous, amiable interaction and cultural borrowing between Christians and Muslims; 3) that much of the modern tension between the Christian and Muslim worlds is the result of non-religious factors.

Fighting to Cure Food and Drug Allergies

Friday, June 2
2:30 – 3:30 pm
DeBartolo Classroom Hall, Room 138

Food and drug allergies are increasing health concerns in developed nations. Depending on the severity of the allergic reaction, the results can vary from a simple itch to anaphylactic shock, which results in 1,500 deaths each year in the U.S. Despite all the clinical research, current diagnostic methods are still very primitive. More importantly, there are no drugs in the clinic that prevent the allergic reaction from taking place. Prof. Bilgicer’s research group has developed solutions to both pressing problems, and this talk will summarize their findings and next steps.

Presenter: Basar Bilgicer, Associate Professor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

2:30 – 3:30 pm
Jordan Hall of Science, Digital Visualization Theater

Shortly thereafter, heavier elements that provide the “spice” of life were created in supernovae explosions and merging neutron stars. Come hear the exciting tale, details of which are being explored by researchers here at Notre Dame.

Presenter: Timothy C. Beers, Chair of Astrophysics

Sponsored by the Asian-Pacific Alumni of Notre Dame

This talk will cover evolution of the Chinese rail system, exploring its role in advancing both China’s domestic development goals and its global economic and political interests.
