We are excited to announce that Dr. Sean B. Carroll, vice president for science education at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, will be the 2018 Whitney lecturer for the Whitney Lecture Series.
The Whitney Lecture started in the late 1990’s with generous endowed support from an esteemed research scientists and scientific adviser at Whitney, who wished to remain anonymous. The series, hosted by our Board of Trustees, is designed to bring preeminent scientists to the Whitney lab and the University of Florida’s main campus to help build on our strength in marine biomedical research and share this with our main campus scientific community. Past speakers have included Nobel prize-winning researchers as well as artists and conservationists.
Past Whitney Lecturers have included: Adrian Horridge, Boldomero Olivera, Sydney Brenner, Martin Chalfie, Eric H. Davidson, Walter Gehring, Rodolfo Llinas, Erwin Neher, Carl Safina, Peter Stone, and Roger Y. Tsien.
We hope you will join us to welcome this significant contributor to science hear about their fascinating research. For more information about The Whitney Lecture or Whitney Laboratory, call 904-461-4000.
