The Faculty Council is excited to continue bringing you opportunities to experience events where colleagues share faculty research through our HawkTalks series. 

Please consider joining us for the final presentation of the Spring 2022 semester on Tuesday afternoon, April 26 from 3:00 PM-4:00 PM. (CST) featuring Dr. Cammi Valdez, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Gregg Wadley College of Science and Health Professions.

Dr. Valdez’s research interests include: diabetic retinopathy, eye disease, CADASIL, diabetes, mouse models, vascular biology, tool development, community needs, STEM education, biomedical research, translational research, and diversity.

For this presentation, Dr. Valdez will highlight two research projects utilizing 3D modeling and printing from the Valdez Laboratory. The Valdez Laboratory takes a four-pronged approached to studying Diabetic Retinopathy, the eye disease in diabetes: vascular research, tool developments, community needs, and STEM education. We are able to accomplish this through traditional lab benchwork with mouse models of disease, computational programming, and innovative approaches with 3D printing to connect with our community.  For the project on accessibility, Dr. Valdez will share her success in creating an accessible 3D model of the capillary for blind and low vision audiences. For the project on education, Dr. Valdez will discuss how she developed kinesthetic learning tools for chemical structure knowledge retention by students in Biochemistry. 

Titlte: 3D Printing in Science for Accessibility and Education.

This talk will highlight two research projects utilizing 3D modeling and printing in the Valdez Lab. For the project on accessibility, we have created an accessible 3D model of the capillary for blind and low vision audiences. For the project on education, we have developed kinesthetic learning tools for chemical structure knowledge retention by students in Biochemistry.

Subsequent presenters are faculty members who are past recipients of NSU FRC grants.


In following campus policies and precautions related to the COVID-19 virus, the Faculty Council HawkTalks presentation will be made available via Zoom only. Please consider joining us virtually for our spring 2022 HawkTalks presentations.
