Robert Full wants to tap the diverse experiences of UC Berkeley undergraduates to teach them the fun of discovering biology’s secrets and the innovations that can spring from hacking them.
Maybe he’ll spark a few entrepreneurs in the process.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) announced today that 14 leading scientists have been named HHMI professors, an award that recognizes excellence in research and education and empowers recipients to explore new approaches to important challenges in science education. HHMI is awarding 10 individual grants of $1 million each and two grants for collaborative projects that will receive a total of $1.5 million each over five years.
Co-directors Catherine Ryan and Gary Weimberg will introduce the 4/22 screening, and introduce and lead a discussion following the 4/28 screening.
BS Nature documentary that first aired March 29 and is now available for streaming explores the impact of climate change on Yosemite National Park, and features two UC Berkeley biologists who climb to the tops of giant sequoias to understand what the future holds for these ancient trees.
Evolutionary Biology Workshop in the Alps (The previous posting contained a typo in an invited professor’s name, for which we apologize.) The 2017 edition of the Evolutionary Biology Workshop in the Alps will take place on 17-23 June 2017 in Riederfurka, Switzerland. Target participants are PhD students in early stages of PhD and advanced Master students.
This election was particularly stressful. More than 50 percent of Americans reported that it was a significant source of stress, and this was true for supporters of both parties. The surprising result certainly stressed many. So, what do we do now?
The stress response is actually crucial for survival. When we get down to the biology of it, we understand that without it an organism will die when it encounters the first challenge in its environment.
After 15 years of research findings on efforts to fight malaria, a researcher has proposed a combination of insect repellents and insecticides to combat malaria scourge.
Michael Boots, a University of California, Berkeley, professor of integrative biology, who worked with his colleagues at Exeter University in the United Kingdom on the project, disclosed this on Monday in San Francisco, United States of America.
