NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

 

Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres

Speaker:  Evan J Conte, MD

Trenton Orthopaedic Group at the Rothman Institute

“Pioneering Techniques in Shoulder Replacement: 

Past, Present and Future”

In 1893 Paris, the first shoulder replacement was performed on a 37 year-old man with destructive tuberculosis of the shoulder joint.  From this experimental last resort, using a simple but ingenious design of platinum and natural rubber --- shoulder replacement has become a common and routine surgery.  It has transformed from an initial indication to treat degeneration of a joint, to a solution for complex fractures and even failed rotator cuff tears.  After reviewing the anatomy, history and biomechanics involved, shoulder surgeon Evan Conte will discuss the future of shoulder replacement:  and in particular, how it will incorporate advances in computer-aided design, biomedical imaging and 3D printing to enable patient-specific approaches to complex pathologies.

Registration Required via propellers.princetonaaa.org

First Friday Lunch - April 5, 2019

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons


Matthieu Dutil

 

A native of Angers, France, Matthieu Dutil is a first-year Ph.D. Student in the Department of French and Italian at Princeton University. His interests lie at the intersection of literature and science in texts written by naturalist philosophers in the eighteenth century, with a focus on animal studies, in particular the study of insects (entomology). As a first-year student, Matthieu has not yet decided on a topic for his thesis, but he still has an idea of where his interests are leading him. Focusing on the genre of science fiction, Matthieu aims to understand the epistemological questions involved in the writing of such a literature, as well as the impact that it can have in scientific fields. Focusing on the study of insects, Matthieu wants to understand science fiction in a larger way and therefore wants to confront texts from the eighteenth century and contemporary novels to understand the legacy of a particular way of writing that led to what we call today science fiction.

Matthieu received a B.A. in English Literature with honors from the Université Catholique de l’Ouest (Catholic University of the West) in his hometown, and an M.A. in French Literature from The University of Hawai’i at Manoa.

 

Please join us!  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion.

Princeton University Solar Collector Field Tour

Princeton University's Solar Collector Field can only seen from the Dinky, and since that is not running, come with us on a private tour!!

 
Friday April 12 @ 4:00pm
 
With 16,528 photovoltaic panels covering 27 acres, Princeton‘s solar collector field is among the largest single installations at a U.S. college or university.  The project site is located on land adjacent to Princeton‘s main campus between the New Jersey Transit "Dinky" spur line.  The project was built on land that holds the “spoils” from dredging Lake Carnegie back in the 1970s, so it would have been quite challenging to farm or locate a building there. 
 
Princeton University’s Solar Field is now even more sustainable thanks to a fleecy flock that keeps the 27 acres trim and tidy. The new ewe system is a creative and economical way to keep grass and weeds from reducing the efficiency of the photovoltaic panels that provide solar energy to campus. The 75 Katahdin sheep have been dining out at solar fields in the state for years!
 
Our tour is slated for Friday April 12 at 4:00pm.   Space is limited, so please let us know if you are interested by Tuesday April 2nd.    Send your name to pete@pattonhall.us.com so we can reserve your space.  Upon receipt, we will send you all the pertinent details as to where to meet!  Kids are welcome but alas, our furry friends would probably not do to well with the sheep!!
