Causes of allergies, asthma topic of lecture

Citizen Staff Writer



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.”

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
