On May 11th, the Department of Biology held the Deitrich Bodenstein Distinguished Lecture Series in Developmental Biology. Hosted by Dr. Sarah Siegrist, this year’s talk, entitled “Development and function of a locomotor circuit in Drosphila”, was presented by Dr. Chris Q. Doe. Dr. Doe is a Professor of Biology at the University of Oregon, as well as a member and co-director of the institution’s Institute of Neuroscience. His main research interest is “Drosophila Neuro Development: From Stem Cells to Circuits.” The Bodenstein lecture series has been held at the University of Virginia for decades, and has become an annual occurrence within the Department.
