Paul D. Adams, professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the U of A's Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and the Cell and Molecular Biology Program in the Graduate School and International Education, has been invited to give the 10th Charles Darwin Diversity in Science Lecture at Indiana State University.

For 10 years now, the Department of Biology at Indiana State University has been cultivating partnerships and building a science community that exemplifies the spirit of experiential learning and community engagement. Through partnerships on and off campus, the Charles Darwin Diversity in Science Lecture speaker series was developed to spark interest and broaden the scope of scholarship opportunities between students, faculty and the public in the Wabash Valley. 

"I am very honored by this invitation to represent the University of Arkansas while speaking about the work we have been doing in my laboratory centered around protein biochemistry and biophysics," Adams said. "I am also happy to represent why diversity in chemistry and biology is vital as we cultivate the next generation of scientists."

Previous Diversity in Science speakers have included Tyrone Hayes of the University of California at Berkeley and Scott Edwards of Harvard University.

Adams' lecture will highlight findings from his research at the U of A and is titled "Biophysical and Biochemical Approaches to Characterize Novel Molecular Details That Influence Ras-Related Protein Cell Signaling Function." 

Adams will deliver the 10th Charles Darwin Diversity in Science Lecture on March 19 at Indiana State University and will also visit with the students and faculty of ISU campus during his stay.
