"First Friday" Science Seminar for March explores "power of DNA"

From Tom Ready
Chemistry Department, Midland College

On the first Friday of each month, Midland College hosts a lecture featuring current topics of interest in the science field. To our delight, we have re-scheduled Dr. Paul Mangum, Professor and Program Chair for the Biology Department at Midland College, whose talk scheduled for last semester was canceled due to Midland College closing for weather. Please encourage students - and the Midland community - to attend. This seminar will be of interest to everyone.

Event: First Friday Science Seminar (March)
Time: Friday, September 5th, 12:00 p.m. (noon)
Location: Carrasco Room, Scharbauer Student Center, Midland College campus
Speaker: Midland College Science Faculty & Students
Title: "The Power of DNA: What DNA can tell us about ourselves and the world around us"

He earned a Ph.D. from Texas Tech University in the College of Agriculture, studying the genetics and breeding of onions (2001). He came to Midland College in 1995. Awards he has received include the Exxon Education Foundation Innovation Award in 1996, the Midland College Outstanding Teaching Award in 1999, and the Kenan Fellow of the National Tropical Botanical Gardens in 2005.

The free lecture will be held at 12:00 noon in the Carrasco Room, Scharbauer Student Center. Guests are invited to bring their lunch.
