Perspectives in Biology 2014 – Sneak Preview

For the past 29 years, the Department of Biology has hosted the annual Perspectives in Biology Symposium early in November. This program brings three eminent biologists to Winston-Salem for an intensive and collegial series of scholarly presentations for faculty from colleges and universities in the region. The speakers present state of the art information on a diversity of topics, information which many of the faculty attendees can immediately apply to their own teaching and research. The PIB program is routinely attended by 60-80 biology faculty representing 30-35 institutions from NC, SC, VA, TN and MD, together with Wake Forest University professors and graduate students.

The Department of Biology is pleased to announce the roster of speakers for the 30th Annual Perspectives in Biology symposium on November 7 and 8, 2014. Please check this site for updates as November approaches. Note that the format of the symposium will be the same as in previous years, but that there will be additional options for registration, including online registration with a credit card.

Featured Speakers for 2014:

  • Simon Gilroy, University of Wisconsin
  • Rob DeSalle, American Museum of Natural History
  • Heather Patisaul, North Carolina State University
