Science Cafe: From Embryos to Evolution: The Origins of Biological Diversity

Wednesday, February 14, 2018
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Radmacher Meeting Room

Chicken, lizard, mouse, or human—all animals start out as a simple fertilized egg. By the time they are born, they are each animals we recognize easily.

We will explore how animals acquire their distinctive sizes and shapes during development and how small modifications within the embryo create the diverse creatures we see today. Thomas Sanger, assistant professor of biology at Loyola University, will discuss his research and faciliate an activity.
