Health Science Center’s Dr. Richard L. Cross of Onondaga Hill to Participate in National Satellite TV Seminar, April 23

The Health Science Center’s Richard L. Cross, Ph.D. has been invited by the American Chemical Society to participate in a national Satellite Television Seminar series for chemistry and other science students during National Science and Technology Week in April. Dr. Cross, a resident of Onondaga Hill, is Professor and Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse.

The Seminar Series features discussions with recent Nobel Laureates in the sciences. Dr. Cross will participate in the April 23 seminar with Dr. Paul Boyer, who captured a 1997 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Dr. Cross conducted work that contributed to Boyer’s Nobel-Prize winning conclusions about an enzyme that supplies energy to living organisms.

The objectives of the Seminar Series are to show students that scientific discoveries and an understanding of science are relevant to them and that scientific research can be an exciting and rewarding career choice. Dr. Cross will specifically discuss his reasons for studying biochemistry and an explanation of his work particularly as it relates to the Nobel Prize winning work of Dr. Boyer. It is anticipated that an audience of 5-10,000 students nationally will be able to telephone questions to the studio.
