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.”
