Nematodes are the topic of the March ‘Lunch and Learn’ presentation

Robin Cook Hill, assistant professor of biology, will discuss her innovative and exciting research on nematodes at the March 16  “Lunch and Learn” presentation.

“Sex, Worms and Evo-Devo. New directions: Nematode diversity in Southwest Virginia,” is the title of her lecture. She will discuss the development of the focus of her current research project and will highlight the challenges of conducting active research in a teaching-intensive institution.

Faculty members are encouraged to attend her lecture to become familiar with her work and to gain perspective on ways to approach demanding research while still immersed in a teaching environment.

The presentation takes place in Zehmer Hall, Room 118, from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m on Wednesday, March 16.  Water and an assortment of soft drinks will be provided.

Faculty “Lunch and Learn” presentations take place on the third Wednesday of each month during the semester.  This series is designed to showcase the extraordinary work and research being done by UVa-Wise faculty.  Everyone is welcome and invited to bring their lunch to these sessions.
