The University and Toledo communities are invited to learn about UT research related to art and health during the second presentation of the Nexus program.

Nexus began in January as a way for faculty members to showcase their research and provide faculty, staff, students and the public a way to make connections between different disciplines.

The second presentation in the Nexus series will be Wednesday, April 25, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Libbey Hall with several faculty members providing information to introduce their research related to art and disease/health. Refreshments will be provided.

The Nexus program, which is sponsored by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, occurs periodically throughout the academic year with brief presentations by faculty members in specific disciplines. Presentations are in the pecha kucha format, which was developed by architects with 20 slides in six minutes and 40 seconds — 20 seconds per slide.

Nexus was developed by Dr. Elsa G. Nadler, director of grants development, and Dr. James Trempe, vice president for research.

For more information on the free, public program, contact Nadler at or 419.5305302.
