It will be an opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration, connecting evolving fields within the life sciences at varying scales of inquiry, from the molecular level to the ecosystem level, to communicate important findings, foster integrative research, encourage resource protection, and influence national policy.
There will be plenary lectures by invited speakers and short talks. In the lineup thus far are Dr. Baldomero Olivera (University of Utah), Dr. Eric Schmidt (University of Utah), Dr. Margo Haygood (University of Utah), Dr. Terrence Gosliner (California Academy of Sciences) and Dr. Gary Rosenberg (Drexel University).
