Please join the Division of Biological Sciences as we celebrate our 60th anniversary in 2020. Our new “A Deep Look into the Future of Biology,” series will be moderated by Dean Kit Pogliano in Tata Hall’s Kavli Auditorium and live streamed for those who cannot attend in person. The format for each event will be four short, impactful presentations followed by a panel discussion.

This event is free and open to the public. Complimentary parking will be available near Tata Hall at 4pm. Event will start promptly at 4:30pm. A post-event reception with light refreshments will follow. Further details will be emailed to attendees as the event nears.

Speakers to include Omar Akbari, Steve Briggs, John Evans and Hannah Grunwald

The field of genetics is exploding with a new world of discovery in which biologists are now regularly creating novel methods to address urgent global crises—from halting malaria to increasing food production. Along with leading science, UC San Diego researchers are addressing critical ethical concerns that are inherently linked with cutting-edge discovery.
