Heart attacks and strokes are among the most common causes of death among adults in the United States. The research in Dana Abendschein’s lab focuses on developing new medicines/drugs from naturally occurring proteins that our body makes to fight the process of thrombosis (clotting) and inflammation of the blood vessels. In this interactive Teen Science Café, we’ll explore and discuss how these new drugs made by recombinant DNA technology not only work better than those currently available (some derived from insect or leach saliva), but also don’t cause the bleeding side effects that are a problem with available drugs.

We’ll talk about these questions and explore some open (unsolved!) problems in theoretical mathematics. This Cafe’ won’t require any mathematics you learned in school, so bring your curiosity but leave your algebra at home.
