BIO Distinguished Lecture – Sheila Patek

About this event

Please join us on November 7th at 1:00 PM in room 3410 as the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems hosts Dr. Sheila Patek for her BIO Distinguished Lecture titled, “From Fast to Ultrafast: Evolutionary dynamics and interdisciplinary principles of extreme biological movement."

From the extraordinary accelerations of mantis shrimp hammers and trap-jaw ant jaws, to a new, interdisciplinary paradigm of spring-driven, latch-mediated movement, this talk examines the interface of biological discovery and interdisciplinary translation at the outer extremes of fast motion.

Please contact Tara Bracken [tbracken@nsf.gov] to attend in person at NSF Headquarters. The lecture will be webcast beginning at 12:45 PM on November 7th at the following URL: [https://bluejeans.com/256289671/].
