|Baylor anatomist to present BIMD seminar Oct. 12|
On Friday, Oct. 12, the School of Medicine and Health Sciences welcomes Kathy Svoboda, past president of the American Association of Anatomists, professor of biomedical science and director of research development at Baylor University's College of Dentistry, who will be our distinguished guest. In addition to directing the Imaging Core Facilities of the Baylor University College of Dentistry, Dr. Svoboda maintains an active research lab, and is involved in the activities of working with state and federal legislative bodies to preserve and protect the availability of cadaver dissection in the face of new changes to the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act.
Her talk, titled "Combining Structural and Functional Studies to Understand Corneal Development," will be both a review of her own pivotal work in corneal development, and a tribute to her mentor, Dr. Elizabeth Hay, who died this past August. The seminar will be held in Room 5510 of the medical science building and the public is welcome to attend.
