Join MOR and the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences as we explore cutting-edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by an engaging question and answer session.
Wednesday, March 22 | Adaptations in Owls with Denver Holt
How well can they see at night, how well can they hear, how silently do owls fly, why are they so hard to find—and why do people admire them so much? Denver Holt, president of the Owl Research Institute, will discuss what owls can tell us about adapting to environments.
Wednesday, April 19 | DNA Surgery for Curing Genetic Diseases with Dr. Blake Wiedenheft
How can immune strategies used by bacteria to fight off viruses be employed to cure genetic diseases in humans? Dr. Blake Wiedenheft, assistant professor of microbiology and immunology at MSU, and recent winner of a Presidential Early Career Award will present his research insights and their implications.
Wednesday, May 10 | The Exotic Stellar Graveyard with Dr. Bennett Link
All stars evolve to end up as white dwarfs, neutron stars, or black holes, each with extraordinary properties—capable of producing huge explosions and gravitational waves. Dr. Bennett Link, professor of physics at Montana State University, will discuss what these extreme objects tell us about the universe in which we live.
