Nicholas Be of the biosciences and biotechnology division at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will be the first speaker in the annual Science and Engineering seminar series at Las Positas College on Tuesday Oct. 8. The seminar will start at 6 p.m. in the college's Multi-Disciplinary Building Lecture Hall, Room 2420. This year's series is the fourth joint effort of the college and the Lab to explore the overall issue of "Theory to Practice: How Science Gets Done." Dr. Be will discuss the topic, "Combating Infections: Fighting to Heal Wounds from the Battlefield." He will explain how modern combat environments create many difficult medical challenges, including the management of traumatic wounds, and will examine how the extreme severity of combat trauma creates massive injuries that damage tissue, bone, nerve connections, and the blood supply and how healing such wounds is dependent on both the degree of infection and the way the human body responds to the injury. Although there is no charge to attend, visitors are reminded that the campus has a $2 parking fee. Daily tickets are available from vending machines in the campus parking lots.
