REGISTRATION OPENS ON 08/29 at 9:00AM
Everything in nature is regulated—from the numbers of vital molecules in our bloodstream to the number of lions on an African savanna. Over the past 50 years, two revolutions have unfolded in biology in understanding the regulation of life at these two scales. Dr. Carroll will discuss the discovery of the “Serengeti Rules”—the ecological rules that regulate the numbers and kinds of animals and plants in any given place, and how they can be applied to restoring ecological health.
DR. SEAN B. CARROLL, Molecular Biology & Genetics, University of Wisconsin; Vice President, Science Education, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
