SMP 11/8/03 | Calling 911: The Physics of Heart and Lung Function | Speaker: Seth Blumberg

Saturday, November 8, 2003
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: Seth Blumberg (U-M Physics)

Seth Blumberg’s cancer experience inspired him to enter medical school. As a medical student with a quantitative background, he has enjoyed learning about the role physics plays in health and disease. For instance, when medical professionals respond to an emergency their first priorities are to ensure adequate airway clearance, breathing and circulation. The physics behind adequate breathing and circulation is remarkably simple, yet pervasive. This lecture will discuss the role physics plays in our understanding of various respiratory and circulatory diseases.
