Son of UD's Nobel laureate to speak at Undergraduate Research Symposium Aug. 8

July 16, 2002--Students conducting biology research this summer at UD will have the opportunity to hear a lecture by Jeremy Nathans, researcher for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and son of Daniel Nathans, the late UD alumnus who won the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1978.

Jeremy Nathans specializes in the molecular genetics of the retina and the mechanisms of human retinal diseases.

His talk, entitled "The Evolution of Human Color Vision,” will begin at noon, Thursday, Aug. 8, in 101 Brown Laboratory.

The symposium is the final event in the Summer Undergraduate Research Enrichment Program, a weekly lecture series that provides students with information about issues, such as how to obtain funding for research, publishing in scientific journals and research careers in industry.

In addition to the Nathans’ lecture, the day will include oral presentations by students who have demonstrated outstanding ability and poster discussions by Howard Hughes Medical Institute scholars. Some of the HHMI students will go on to present their work at the annual Experimental Biology Meetings, in San Diego next April.

This summer, 56 students participated in enrichment sessions for HHMI scholars, Peter White fellows, BRIN scholars and science and engineering scholars.
