Professor Kim Nasmyth: How are chromosomes held together?
Intended audience: Faculty, staff, grad students, and third- or fourth-year undergraduate students.
Professor Kim Nasmyth: My scientific journey; a lecture for young scientists.

Join us for an evening with Dr. Karl Gebhardt, a Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Texas, Austin. He studies various ‘dark’ aspects of galaxies, and has measured more black hole masses than anyone in the world.
"We are living in a unique time for Astronomy as its focus shifts from exploring the light side to mounting a full scale attack on the dark side: black holes, dark matter and dark energy. I will overview current and future battle plans that promise to bring about a fundamental transformation of our understanding of the Universe."
