Microarray Technology in Biomedical Research

Johnson County Community College Scholars Lecture

Stanislav Svojanovsky
Tuesday, February 22nd – this is a rescheduled date
7-8:00 p.m.

M.R. and Evelyn Hudson Auditorium
2nd floor of the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art

To be healthy, people have to have all their genes doing the right thing at the right time. Disruption in gene expression is responsible for many diseases.  And now new technology, microarrays, allows scientists to analyze gene expression as a way to understand diseases with underlying genetic causes and pinpoint possible therapies.

In this lecture, Svojanovsky will provide an overview of the microarray technology development and its application in current biomedical research, looking at its multiple steps from data acquisition through statistical analysis and biological interpretations.

A reception precedes the event at 6:30 p.m. in the Regnier Center.

I am a high school biology teacher at Blue Valley North High School where I have taught freshman Biology and Honors Biology, Field Biology, Zoology, and AP Biology for the past 15 years. I am sponsor of the Environmental Club and our molecular modeling S.M.A.R.T. Team program. I am also the current treasurer of the Kansas Herpetological Society. Although I like most things biological, I have specific interests in the natural history of KS endemics (the outdoors) and things molecular. I am a pretty avid reader, I enjoy maintaining my website, and taking photographs. I plan on having students blogging and creating podcasts by the end of the year.
