Jan 16
Frontiers in Science Public Lecture Series, starts at 3:30 p.m., Boca BC71, Room 126
Title: Inspirational Biomolecules from Oceania - A sketch of The Past, Current Developments, and Future Prospects
Phil Crews
Distinguished Professor of Chemistry
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
University of California at Santa Cruz
Since the early 1970’s, The UC Santa Cruz (UCSC) marine natural products program has discovered more than 1,100 molecular structures of marine invertebrates and microorganisms. The promise that these biomolecules hold continues to captivate the interests of research groups throughout the world.
The lecture will introduce these inspirational biomolecules from Oceana to our non-scientists friends. The lecture content should energize the next generation of marine bioorganic scientists to engage in marine biomolecule discovery. It will also cover contributions of past luminaries, then jump to the current quest to advance marine-derived small molecules as tools for biomedical research.

Frontiers in Science Public Lecture Series, starts at 3:30 p.m., Boca BC71, Room 126
Random Collisions and Ordered Events in a Career Journey through the Life and Physical Sciences
Donna J. Dean, Ph.D.
Senior Executive (retired), National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland
Leadership and Talent Development Consultant
Association for Women in Science Career Consultant
American Chemical Society
The 21st century has opened with unprcedented opportunities for discovery. In this lecture, the speaker brings cogent examples from her extensive experience in leading Federal government sectors that support science across a broad array of research areas. With in-depth knowledge of their own fields, researchers face the challenges of finding opportunities for new endeavors, developing skill in brokering collaborations, and forging alliances among disparate groups and disciplines. Although new research approaches may emerge from a specific need to address an already defined problem, serendipitous occurrences and chance encounters can result in groundbreaking new work on challenging problems. In either case, new ways of conducting research and addressing exciting challenges at the physical and life sciences interface are essential.

Snoop Dreams: The Expression of Personality in Everyday Contexts
Sam Gosling, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology
University of Texas, Austin
How are we connected to the spaces in which we live and work? How do our living rooms, bedrooms, offices, music collections, and Facebook profiles reflect what we are like and, more fundamentally, who we are? We are so tightly bound to our living and work spaces that many of the connections linking people and places go unnoticed. But these environments are rich with information about our values, attitudes, preferences, and personality. This talk will present the result of a decade’s worth of research unraveling the links between people and places and figuring out what they mean. Some clues—the Martin Luther King poster on the office wall or the high-brow books left casually lying on the coffee table—are deliberate (but not always disingenuous) signals directed towards others about how we would like to be seen. Other clues—the music on your iPod or the disarray in the office-desk drawer—are inadvertent reflections of our styles of feeling and thinking and of our history of behavior. Together, these studies of physical, aural, and virtual environments illuminate the intimate bonds between people the worlds they craft around themselves.
