January 14 - Dr. Mark Martindale | The Value of Marine Labs in Discovering Diverse Animals of the Sea
Join us for our January Webinar! Dr. Martindale will share the role of marine laboratories in discovery, animal evolution, and biodiversity.
Dr. Mark Martindale, professor in the Department of Biology, has broad training in integrative biology but became interested in experimental embryology as an undergraduate at the New College in Sarasota, Fla. He has published more than 200 papers on a wide variety of topics in some 15 animal phyla, including co-authoring two important genome papers of basally branching metazoans (the anthozoan cnidarian Nematostella vectensis and the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi) and was the cofounding editor of the open-access journal EvoDevo. He is particularly interested in the relationship of development to regenerative biology, the role of the cleavage program on the origin of spatial organization during the early developmental period, the developmental basis for symbiosis, and manipulating cells to give rise to novel biological materials.
