Synthetic Biology, Phantom Ecology and other Radical New Approaches to Both Save Species and Broaden Participation in STEM


Registration for the Zoom webinar

It is no secret that our world is facing unprecedented challenges like climate change, mass extinction, pollution of our waterways, and the toxification of our planet. In order for us to solve these problems, we will need to take both unconventional approaches to the science, and the community of science. In this talk, Dr. Muldrow, Jr. will present a challenge to conservation biology regarding the methods needed to employ to avert disaster. And, to ensure success, we will need to take everyone along for the ride.

This will be a virtual presentation. An in-person event will be held in the VU Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) with large-screen viewing, questions and discussion. Students are welcome to join via the webinar or come to the VU MPR. The off-campus community is invited to join the webinar online.

We are excited that we will be live-streaming from WWU campus for the webinar for our off-campus audience. 

Due to the pandemic, only WWU students, faculty, and staff will be in-person for the presentation.
