Block 82 Presents: “Inventing the Future of Medicine” on March 9

The UT System Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of Talent and Innovation invite you to a conversation with Dr. Livia Eberlin, an award-winning UT Austin scientist and inventor, on Monday, March 9, 12-1 p.m., in the Multipurpose Room. An assistant professor in UT Austin's Department of Chemistry, Eberlin's awards include a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship--the so-called "genius grant"--for her research on the use of mass spectrometry to detect cancerous tissue. She will be joined by one of her graduate students, Kyana Garza.

  • Hear about Dr. Eberlin's invention that was featured on Grey’s Anatomy, the MasSpec Pen, which detects cancer in seconds during surgery
  • Discuss ideas on how to inspire the next generation of UT scientists and inventors
  • Understand how UT researchers have an impact on patient care
