|Green is the common theme for Graduate School Dean's Lecture series|
The Graduate School is delighted to announce the 2010 Dean's Lecture Series Speakers, who will present their current research at the upcoming Scholarly Forum with a green theme.
The final presentation in the Dean's Lecture Series is Steven Ralph, assistant professor in the Department of Biology, who will present "Genomic Approaches to Identify Insect Resistance Genes in Poplar Trees." His research aims to identify pest-resistant genes in forest tree species and improve forest productivity by preventing devastating insect pest outbreaks that are occurring more frequently. Ralph will present his research at noon Wednesday, March 10, in the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl.
The Dean's Lecture Series is now in its third year. The Graduate School dean, Joseph Benoit, developed the lecture series to highlight the extraordinary research and scholarship being conducted across the campus by dynamic, pre-tenured faculty.
