Expert to lecture on causes of allergies and asthma

Want to know what in the environment or in your genes causes your allergy or asthma symptoms?

Fernando Martinez, a noted asthma expert and director of the Arizona Respiratory Center at the University of Arizona, probably could tell you.

Martinez, who also heads the UA BIO5 Institute, will lecture on the subject Tuesday.

The event, which is free of charge and open to the public, begins at 5 p.m. at the University Medical Center Duval Auditorium, 1501 N. Campbell Ave.

Martinez’s research focuses on the natural history of childhood asthma and the genetic, physiological and environmental factors behind it. The doctor’s May 5 lecture is titled “Genes and Environment at the Onset of Asthma and Allergies.”

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
