Physics of Cancer: Electrons, Both Cause and Cure
CSUF Professor to Discuss Electrons Role in Cancer Nov. 15

Nov. 9, 2007 :: No. 101


What effects do electrons have on cancer? A Cal State Fullerton assistant professor of physics will discuss research into how electrons play a role in some cancers during a Nov. 15 College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics Dean’s Breakfast.


James G. Childers, assistant professor of physics, will speak on “The Physics of Cancer: The Electron — Its Role in the Cause and Improved Treatments of Cancer.”


7:30-9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 15. Registration begins at 7 a.m.
Coyote Hills Golf Course, 1440 E. Bastanchury Rd., Fullerton 92835


“Basic experiments on electric charge have been performed since the classical period of ancient Greece,” Childers said. “An increased understanding of electric charge has revolutionized our daily lives. Now the electron stands at the forefront of basic research in nearly every branch of physics. Recent research has highlighted the unexpected role that the electron plays in the onset of radiation-induced cancer.”


Tickets are $10 for the public. Members of the Colleagues of the College of Natural
Sciences and Mathematics attend free. For information and reservations, call 657-278-7018 or the website at
