Department of Natural Sciences Presents “Science in the City” Series
On October 28, 2019, Biology majors Julia Furnari ’20 and Cassidy Illum ’22 attended a symposium at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) with Professor of Biology Ann Aguanno. The symposium, entitled “Evolution & Revolution: Transforming Medicine through Comparative Genomics,” featured a panel of scientists from Columbia University, Harvard University, and AMNH. Panelists discussed what genetic evolution can teach us about our own health. They described their latest research on human genomes and the genomes of animals across the tree of life—and the profound implications this work has for the study of human genetics and health.
