The MCHRI SPARK Partnership: Designing Non-ototoxic Aminoglycosides

The Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) partners with the Stanford SPARK program to support innovative maternal and child health projects that will advance research discoveries into promising new treatments for patients. Hear from Dr. Daria Mochly-Rosen, founder and co-director of SPARK, provide a brief overview of the translational research program, mentoring and educational opportunities in drug development and commercialization, and resources available to participants of the program.

In this seminar, Dr. Alan Cheng, associate professor of otolaryngology and a SPARK scholar, will discuss his collaborative work with Dr. Anthony Ricci to create a safer drug version of aminoglycoside antibiotics – a commonly prescribed antibiotic that is one of the leading causes of hearing loss in children. With MCHRI and SPARK support, Dr. Cheng and his research team have developed the first series of antibiotic compounds and are testing the new version of non-ototoxic aminoglycoside antibiotics. He will present current research in this area, progress in the drug development stage, and the future direction of this work. Read more.

From Selma to Moscow: How Human Rights Activists Transformed U.S. Foreign Policy
Join the Handa Center for a talk by Sarah B. Snyder, Associate Professor at American University's School of International Service. She is a historian of U.S. foreign relations who specializes in the history of the Cold War, human rights activism, and U.S. human rights policy.

Dr. Snyder is the author of From Selma to Moscow: How Human Rights Activists Transformed U.S. Foreign Policy, which explains how transnational connections and 1960s-era social movements inspired Americans to advocate for a new approach to human rights. Her first book, Human Rights Activism and the End of the Cold War: A Transnational History of the Helsinki Network, (Cambridge University Press), analyzes the development of a transnational network devoted to human rights advocacy and its contributions to the end of the Cold War.

Outdoor AR: Who Wants to Come Out to Play?

Augmented Reality (AR) has been one of the hottest and most-discussed technologies over the last decade. When executed well, AR adds contextual information and deepens people’s understanding of “reality” by overlaying 3D/2D computer graphics onto videos and display screens. Many experts are predicting an AR boom in the next 5 years over a wide range of applications, including entertainment, education, manufacturing, healthcare, retail, and travel, among others.

Of these many potential uses, outdoor AR is an emerging sector that opens up new possibilities for location-based services. Adding a new digital layer on top of the existing world, outdoor AR will forever change the way we interact with information and open up new ways to transform our surrounding environment. The only limits are our imagination.

While the potential for outdoor AR is huge, it requires new infrastructure. Both startups and big corporations are racing to develop new mapping techniques to position graphics in the real world. Some players are betting on generating content through crowdsourcing, while others still prefer a “walled garden” approach to retain full control over data. Read more.

Environment America Fellowship
We know all about the damage we’re doing to the planet: climate change, plastic pollution, wildlife disappearing forever. But solutions are all around us: better solar panels, better energy storage technology, better electric cars, and on and on. Our mission—the thing that drives everything we do—is to harness our country’s wealth, our technology and our imagination to make our world a greener, healthier and more sustainable place to live for all of us.

Imagine yourself organizing a town hall meeting on solar power. Or building a community coalition to keep local waters clean. Imagine building the organizational power—the funds, the membership, the activist base and more—that it takes to keep all of this critical work going for the long haul. That’s what you’ll do with Environment America during this two-year fellowship program. We work to mobilize the support it takes to build more solar and wind power, reduce global warming pollution, keep our beaches, rivers and streams clean, protect our wildlife and wild places, and hold polluters accountable when they violate our environmental laws.
