Thursday 3 August 1:00pm
An eclectic mix of live action and animated films will be screened as part of the Research Film Festival, hosted by the Office of the Vice President for Research. From blue whales hunting for fish to the work on a new treatment for diabetes to solving a 40-year-old math mystery, the screenings are intended to showcase the latest research taking place at universities around the United States. Several directors and producers will take part in discussions following the screenings. The program is part of a multi-day symposium organized by the University Research Magazine Association, an association dedicated to helping members more effectively publicize research findings. Free and open to the open, the event begins at 1 p.m. in the Avon Cinema, 260 Thayer St.
