The Genetics and Genomics Academy is excited to host Sean B. Carroll, a world-renowned researcher in the field of evolutionary developmental biology, for a discussion and lecture that will draw from his book, Brave Genius: A Scientist, a Philosopher, and Their Daring Adventures from the French Resistance to the Nobel Prize. The book is about the lives and work of biochemist Jacques Monod and philosopher Albert Camus during the Nazi occupation of France. 

The lecture will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Hunt Library, and a reception and Q&A session will follow the lecture. This event is open to the public, and you do not have to read Brave Genius to attend.

Before the lecture at Hunt Library, Carroll will present “Butterfly Spots and Rattlesnake Tales: The Evolution of Novelty” at the Genetics and Genomics Seminar at 1:30 p.m. in Stephen's Room (3503) at Thomas Hall.

For more information about Carroll's visit to NC State, go to the Genetics and Genomics Academy website.
