Perspectives in Biology 2015

For the past 30 years, the Department of Biology has hosted the annual Perspectives in Biology Symposium in early 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. So, mark your calendars! We look forward to seeing everyone on November 6-7, 2015.

Featured Speakers for 2015:


  • Sue Kinnamon, University of Colorado School of Medicine
  • Doug Emlen, University of Montana
  • Sheila Patek, Duke University
