CI Lecture Series @ Foster

The CI Lecture Series continues at E.P. Foster Library! Our next speaker, Dr. Phil Hampton, will be presenting on Wednesday, March 4.

Dr. Hampton will use Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking-Glass” to explore "handed molecules" and how they relate to the thalidomide tragedy of the late 50s. A hands-on activity and 3D visualization of molecules will be included in this informative talk.

It all starts at 5 p.m. in the Topping Room. We hope to see you there!
