Bob Goldstein, "Water bears: an emerging model for studying the evolution of animal body plans and survival of biological materials in extreme conditions"

May 16, 2016 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Clark Center Auditorium S001

Free and open to the public.

Bob Goldstein is a Professor of Biology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Current work in his lab addresses several fundamental questions in cell and developmental biology — how cells move to specific positions during development, how cells change shape, how intercellular signals act to polarize cells, and how the mitotic spindle is positioned in cells. They are also developing an obscure relative of C. elegans and Drosophila, a water bear, to study how such developmental mechanisms can evolve to produce organisms with different forms.
