Lecture by Prof. Jorge Medeiros, President of the University of the Azores
The archipelago of the Azores, comprised of nine islands, is located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It is in this “natural laboratory” that researchers at the University of the Azores—established scholars and graduate students—contribute to cutting-edge science. Prof. Medeiros’s lecture will give an overview of the latest research at the University of the Azores.
Prof. Jorge Medeiros is President and Professor of Natural Products Chemistry at the University of the Azores. He received a Ph.D. in Chemical Sciences from Mississippi State University and undertook a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Washington State University. He has published extensively on the environmental condition of lakes, geothermal energy, and marine organisms, all in an Azorean context.
(Prof. Medeiros will also speak (in Portuguese) at the Casa dos Açores da Nova Inglaterra at 232 South Main Street, Fall River, Massachusetts, on Wednesday, February 22 at 7 p.m.)
