Athletes are now performing feats that were unimaginable in the recent past. Athletes run faster, jump higher, hit balls further and are stronger than ever before. Many of the advances in athletic performance have been fueled by scientific innovations along with a better understanding of metabolism, nutrition and kinesiology. Join USD Chemistry Professor Mitch Malachowski, PhD, to learn about the role science plays in creating new materials that enhance sport, how performance-enhancing drugs have created ethical questions about sport and how artificial body parts change our perception of what it means to be human.

For ages 55 and up.
