To civilizations throughout time, fermentation has been seen as a magical transformation of foods or beverages. In this session, ASU's Holly Huffman, senior lecturer in biochemistry in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, will guide you through a look at these magical microorganisms to get a glimpse of the biochemical aspects of fermentation, an appreciation for the ubiquitous role fermentation plays in our lives and well-being, and the contribution fermentation makes in commercial markets.    

Be amazed by our interdependence on the fermenting organisms in our bodies, predominately the huge health impact of fermentation by probiotics in our gut that modulate our immune systems and overall well-being. We'll look at the history of fermentation as a method of food preservation as well as the prevalence of fermented foods in our everyday lives and as part of world cultures. We’ll consider the practical aspects of use of fermentation in bioremediation, large scale production of biological compounds used in research and in medicine, as well as in the production of alternative fuels.

Holly Huffman holds a doctorate in biochemistry and molecular biology from University of California, Riverside, and has completed postdoctoral work at the Mayo Clinic and ASU. A faculty member at ASU Polytechnic campus since 2004, she was instrumental in establishing the chemistry program there. She is analyzing the nutritional content of foods from aeroponic gardens and has previously supervised research projects on enzyme kinetics. She enjoys doing many types of fermentation in her day-to-day life.

This session is part of the Science and Mathematics Colloquium Series at ASU's Polytechnic campus, in which faculty and practictioners discuss their current research and field projects.

Liz Cohen, a Colombian-American photographer and performance artist born in 1973, is best known for her project "BODYWORK," in which she transformed an aging East German Trabant into an American El Camino lowrider, and herself into a car customizer and bikini model. Cohen's earlier work "CANAL," a series of black and white photographs and performances, documents sex workers on the fringe of the Panama Canal Zone. In her more recent work, "HIM," she depicts an ostracized poet through black and white photographs, weaving and collaged textiles. Cohen's work has been characterized as examining immigration, nonconformity and resistance. Cohen has received awards from the MacDowell Colony, Akademie Schloss Solitude, the Creative Capital Foundation and the Kresge Foundation. She has exhibited work at Site Santa Fe, Ballroom Marfa, the Cranbrook Art Museum, Färgfabriken and Museum Tinguely. Her projects have been written about in the New York Times, Art in America and Lowrider Magazine. 

Cohen received a Master of Fine Arts in photography from the California College of the Arts. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio art from the School of Museum of Fine Arts and a degree in philosophy from Tufts University. Cohen's work is interdisciplinary, bringing together inquiry in women's studies, literature, poetry and auto mechanics as well as expertise in documentary photography, performance, video, installation and sculpture.

Cultural resources law has achieved heightened visibility in the United States in recent years in the wake of partisan debates and resistance movements.

This symposium seeks to bring together emerging scholars and cultural resources professionals in dialogue over current issues facing this growing field.

Join us for the Arizona premiere of "Mixed Match!"

"Mixed Match" is an important human story told by mixed race people who, after being diagnosed with blood cancers, have to begin seemingly impossible searches to find bone marrow and cord blood donors because of their complex genetics. The multiracial community in the U.S. and Canada is one of the fastest growing demographics. This film confirms that being mixed race is no longer just about identity, and that it can in fact be a matter of life and death. Watch the trailer for "Mixed Match" at https://vimeo.com/179551767.

The screening will be followed by a discussion that will explore disparities and the role race plays in medicine. 

Bone marrow registry drive hosted by Be The Match On Campus ASU.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
