Sean B. Carroll - The Serengeti Rules: The Quest to Discover How Life Works and Why It Matters

Sunday, April 24, 2016 at 6:00 pm

Carroll has explored biology, nature, and evolution in books including Endless Forms Most Beautiful, Remarkable Creatures, The Making of the Fittest, and others. Vice President for science education at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Allan Wilson Professor of Molecular Biology and Genetics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Carroll in his seventh book probes deeper into nature to examine how, for instance, a body knows how many cells to produce or how an ocean or desert regulates populations and biodiversity. Asking the questions, following the scientists through fieldwork and lab experiments, Carroll outlines the very rules of life and their implications for medical treatments.
