    Keynote Presentation


    Jimmy Voorhis, Sustainability Research Fellow

    Jimmy Voorhis, National Geographic Young Explorer, Geoscientist, Mountain Guide
      

    Jimmy is a National Geographic Young Explorer working to understand how climate change has and will affect ice climbing in the Mount Washington Valley, New Hampshire, and how winter guiding will be affected by changing Northeastern winters. For the past two years, he’s worked winters as an ice climbing guide in New Hampshire, and summers as a guide on expeditions to Denali in Alaska. Jimmy holds a B.S. in Geoscience and Engineering Science from Tufts University (2012) and an M.S. in Earth Science from Dartmouth College (2014). His graduate work focused on the geochemistry of arsenic on mineral surfaces.


    Jimmy's presentation is sponsored by National Geographic / Cengage

    Multidisciplinary Thinking Outside the Box: Fighting Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria using Nanomaterials

    The emergence of new antibiotic-resistant bacteria is rapidly accelerating, with strains now resistant to all known antibiotics beginning to be observed. These multi-drug-resistant (MDR) bacteria are a rapidly emerging threat to human health, causing thousands of deaths each year in the US alone. In our research we have brought together chemistry, biology and even a bit of physics to create new nanosponges 100-300 nanometers in diameter. These nanosponges are highly effective against bacteria and are not harmful to mammalian cells (including red blood cells), making them promising treatments for both wound and internal infections.
