Dickson Prize in Science Award Ceremony and Lecture - Dr. Lucy Shapiro

05 May 2021, 05:30 to 06:30
Zoom - Registration Required

Researcher, educator and national medal of science recipient, Dr. Lucy Shapiro is the Virginia and D.K. Ludwig Professor of Developmental Biology at Stanford University. In her research, she views the bacterial cell as an integrated system in which to identify how networks of genes control cell decisions. With this, her work has implications for research beyond the field of developmental biology, such as cell and tissue engineers, computer science network and systems researchers and those interested in health and infectious disease more generally.

Join us for Dr. Shapiro's award presentation and lecture, titled "The Living Cell as an Integrated System."
