Dinner: 6:30pm
Speaker: 7:00pm

Pollution is a rapidly growing concern for people around the world. Scientists are constantly bombarding us with facts on how it affects the environment and our health. Since we're all cosmetic scientists, we will look at how pollution affects our skin and hair. We'll look into which genes are upregulated in response to pollution particles and what types of damage they lead to. We will also look at what effects pollution has on the hair.
