      [Rec. on Sept. 30, 2012 from Gabe Salmon.  SCIENCE CIRCLE is a monthly=
      science seminar series for high school students. It is a grass-roots effort=
      by students, so please honor that by forwarding this message to  HS=
      students who want to learn about science research.  Stuart Lindsay gives=
      excellent presentations! -- Jane J]


      I am a high school student interested in promoting educational vitality in A=
      rizona.
      I am organizing a <http://sites.google.com/site/sciencecircleaz>Science=
      Circle Seminar for motivated high school students interested in exploring=
      significant scientific challenges.
      (Please see the Science Circle <http://sites.google.com/site/sciencecircleaz=
      website for more information.)

      Below is information=A0about the=A0next Science Circle event, on=A0Monday,=
      October 8th=A0from 5:00-6:30pm at the ASU Biodesign Institute on the ASU=
      Tempe campus.

      Dr. Stuart Lindsay will describe his emerging research in nanotechnology to=
      develop new ways to=A0measure and detect biological molecules, such as=
      DNA.=A0For example, Oxford Nanopores announced the world=B9s first nanopore=
      DNA sequencer =AD a device the size of a USB memory stick that streams DNA=
      sequence straight into a laptop.=A0(See=A0<http://vimeo.com/36907534>http:/=
      /vimeo.com/36907534).
      Suddenly the billions of DNA bases in the genome and millions of proteins=
      made by our bodies do not seem so daunting.

      Dr. Lindsay=A0is=A0Director for the Center for Single Molecule Biophysics at=
      the ASU Biodesign Institute, ASU Edward and Nadine Carson Presidential=
      Chair in Physics, and Regents Professor in the Departments of Physics and=
      Chemistry & Biochemistry.

      Sincerely,

      Gabe Salmon
