(sorry, there was a typo - the talk is October 2)


The Department of Applied Mathematics will host a special seminar this
coming Monday. The speaker is not a mathematician, but a doctor who has
done some very interesting research with potential opportunity for
collaboration with mathematicians.

----------------------------------------

Time: October 2, 1:50pm-2:55pm

Location: RE 104 (Rettaliata Engineering Center, formerly Engineering 1).
Coffee, cookies, and further discussion afterward in RE 112

Speaker: Dr. David Teplica, M.D., M.F.A.
- Attending Surgeon, Section of Plastic Surgery, Saint Joseph Hospital
- Clinical Associate, University of Chicago, Section of Plastic Surgery
- Senior Research Fellow, The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender,
and Reproduction

Title: Monozygotic Twins, the Mirror Phenomenon, and a Need to Quantify
Anatomic Discovery

Abstract:
David Teplica MD, MFA is dually trained in Medicine and the Arts and has
created a career that employs visual tools for anatomic discovery. Using
digital photographic techniques and an identical twin research model --and
with clinical insights from his busy plastic surgical practice-- Teplica
and his Chicago-based research group have made some significant discoveries
regarding anatomic predetermination, the anatomy of gender, and the spatial
orientation of some disease processes. Pattern recognition, digital
subtraction techniques, and topographic mapping of body form have helped
answer long-standing medical and social questions, but analytic techniques
are now needed to quantify and validate findings.
