UA lecture on asthma, allergies rescheduled

The University of Arizona has rescheduled for next month a lecture about genetic and environmental causes of asthma and allergies.

Asthma expert Fernando Martinez had been scheduled to give a public lecture on the subject this week. Instead, he will make his presentation – “Genes and Environment at the Onset of Asthma and Allergies” – from noon to 1 p.m. June 30 at the Kiewit Auditorium at the Arizona Cancer Center, 1515 N. Campbell Ave.

Martinez, who serves as the interim director of UA’s Bio5 Institute and heads the Arizona Respiratory Center, researches the natural history of childhood asthma and the genetic, physiological and environmental factors behind it.

The lecture is open to the public at no cost. A reception will follow at 1:30 p.m.

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.
