A Deep Look into the Future of Biology Celebrating 60 years of UC San Diego’s Division of Biological Sciences

In the Spring of 2020 the Division of Biological Sciences unveiled a new public speaker series in honor of our 60th Anniversary titled, "A Deep Look into the Future of Biology". Due to concerns surrounding the transmission of COVID-19 at in person events, the Division has transitioned these events to a virtual format. Each event showcases short, impactful presentations around research, current events, and discoveries in the world of Biology. Starting in Fall 2020, in addition to these short format presentations, the Deep Look series will also include a “Deep Conversation” virtual event series that takes us into an intimate conversation with biologists regarding issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion in the field of biology.

A Deep Look into Earth Day 2021: The Changing Climate of Our Natural World

Thursday, April 22, 2021 | 12:00 p.m.

Host: Kit Pogliano, Dean of the Division of Biological Sciences

In recognition of Earth Day, UC San Diego researchers will offer a range of perspectives on how the climate, human activities and other forces interconnect with our natural world. Hear from leading scientists on: renewable materials that are paving the path to a sustainable future; the value of nature reserves as living laboratories; the benefits of immersing yourself in nature to form an “Earth Connection;” and the impacts of rising CO2, temperature and drought on plants. Join us to hear fresh perspectives on understanding and conserving Planet Earth.
