The Wet Lab is hosting a lecture by scientist Robina Shaheen, PhD, from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UCSD. The lecture will be at the La Jolla Riford Library on Tuesday, August 1st, from 6:30pm – 7:30pm.

Dr. Robina Shaheen is using chemistry to investigate one of the biggest mysteries of nature- the origin and history of the Red Planet. Learn how oxygen triple isotope forensics can tell the story of two famous meteorites from Mars, “ALH84001”, once thought to carry relics of life, and “Black Beauty -NWA7034”, an oldest rock from Mars.
