ECUSA, in collaboration with FERO, ASEICA and AECC has created the “Seed and Soil” talks in cancer research. The objective is to create a network between young researchers in the US with already established researchers in Spain. Following the idea of the seed and soil, we are looking for junior scientists -Seed- in the area of cancer interested in a return to Spain and talk about their projects and perspectives.
We’ve paired up a wonderful selection of speakers that will talk about their research, their career paths, and career advice! In each session, you will meet a Ph.D. candidate with a short talk, a «Seed» scientist that will present their project, and «Soils» principal investigators in the same topic or region. We will have a panel and closing remarks to discuss how is it to start your own group in Spain in Cancer.
4th session June 17th 10am-12pm EST/4-6pm Spain

En el número #6 de ECUSA News & Views, María Tello Lafoz, investigadora en el Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center en Nueva York, nos explica su más reciente estudio publicado en la prestigiosa revista de inmunología, Immunity.
En este artículo, María nos cuenta cómo las células inmunes sellan un «falso pacto» con las células tumorales mediante un fuerte apretón de manos que les ayuda a lanzar gránulos citotóxicos a modo de granadas para eliminarlas y protegernos del cáncer.

About this Event
Note: This event has been rescheduled to December 9th
This talk will discuss the importance of aerosols in disease transmission, a topic that Dr. Jiménez has been working on with world health leaders since March 2020. It will explore the reasons why many scientists think that COVID-19 transmission is dominated by aerosols, followed by a small fraction of airborne respiratory droplets (from coughing and sneezing), and only a minor fraction of transmission by surfaces. The roots of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) extreme resistance to the predominance of aerosol transmission, which has its roots in a century of denial of the role of aerosols in disease transmission, will be addressed. In addition, Dr. Jiménez will make recommendations about how to better protect ourselves from COVID-19 in the coming months, and other respiratory illnesses in the future.
Dr. José Luis Jiménez was born in 1968 in Zaragoza, Spain, where he studied Industrial Engineering. He earned his doctorate in engineering from MIT, and is currently Professor of Chemistry and Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His research focuses on advanced real-time aerosol measurement methods, with measurements on NASA aircraft, as well as mathematical models. He is a highly cited researcher (h = 122) and an Honorary Member of the American Association for Aerosol Research and the American Geophysical Union. Since March 2020, he has been a member of the Morawska-Milton group that is researching and working to convince the WHO and other organizations of the importance of the spread of COVID-19 by aerosols.
