  • How sunbathing and cosmetic chemical treatments affect hair at molecular level - Exposure to sun, particularly during summer, as well as cosmetic chemical hair treatments, can damage hair fibers. Researchers will discuss the extent of hair damage caused by sun and beauty products and how new research is influencing cosmetic companies to develop sunscreen products for hair.

  • The science of smell: how the nose senses odor - The olfactory system determines how we perceive fragrances and other odors, and also provides neuroanatomical pathways by which odorous compounds affect our memory and emotions. In the nose, odorants bind to an extremely large family of receptors. This binding event initiates a cascade of molecular events culminating in the detection and recognition of an odor by the brain. An independent chemical sensor, the vomeronasal organ, also functions to modulate sexual and aggressive behavior in many animals. The presence of this organ in humans suggests that airborne chemicals may be able to influence human behaviors.

    • Childhood blood lead surveillance in Maryland - Maryland law requires that laboratories report all blood lead test results on children to the Maryland Childhood Lead Registry. Reported data are the basis for statewide surveillance, case identification, and case tracking. This presentation will demonstrate uses of this data, including: assessment of screening performance, trends in blood lead levels over time, identification of high risk areas,case management, enforcement, and GIS applications. The presentation will also cover a statute recently passed by Maryland state legislat
