Distinguished Visitor James B. Skeath '88, professor of genetics and director, Genetics Graduate Program, Washington University, St. Louis

From flies to mice to humans, organisms use similar cellular and molecular mechanisms to specify and pattern cell types, tissues, and organs. Leveraging research done in the Drosophila (fruit fly) model system, the talk will discuss how a number of evolutionarily conserved cellular processes – e.g. equivalence groups and asymmetric divisions – drive nervous system development in organisms ranging from flies to humans.

Tea at 2:15 p.m.

Sponsored by the Department of Biology in conjunction with the Distinguished Visitors Program
