Professor Charles Arntzen, PhD is a Regents Professor at ASU associated with
The Biodesign Institute, Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology.
Dr. Arntzen's primary research interests are in plant molecular biology and protein engineering, as well as the utilization of plant biotechnology for enhancement of food quality and value, for expression of pharmacologically active products in transgenic plants, and for overcoming health and agricultural constraints in the developing world. He has been recognized as a pioneer in the development of plant-based vaccines for human disease prevention (with special emphasis on needs of poor countries) and for disease prevention in animal agriculture. Recently this research has been extended to creation of effective vaccines and therapeutics to reduce the threats of biowarfare agents.
Dr. Arntzen will discuss issues surrounding genetically modified organisms.
The meeting is free and open to the public. Doors open at 9:00 am for socializing with an optional breakfast available for a $5 donation. The presentation begins at 10:00 am.
