J. James Woods Lecture Series: Tanya Smith: The Tales Teeth Tell

March 21, 2022 @ 7:30pm

This event takes place in Atherton Union, Reilly Room. This event is free and open to the public, no tickets required.

Professor Smith explores the evolution and development of human dentition. Her research has helped to identify of the origins of a fundamental human adaptation: the costly yet advantageous shift from a “live fast and die young” strategy to the “live slow and grow old” tactic that has helped to make us one of the most successful mammals on the planet.

The “Woods” Series was established by a generous gift from the estate of J. James Woods. The goal of the Woods bequest is to bring prominent mathematicians and scientists to Butler University in order to speak on theories at the frontier of their disciplines, as well as on related technologies and other issues of public concern.
