Event Details

Our midday seminars are open to the public. Because they are directed to a scientific audience, they are more technical than our monthly evening lectures. To learn more about our free Bay Optimism evening lecture series, visit our evening lecture homepage.

Dan Thornhill, a program director in the Biological Oceanography program at the National Science Foundation (NSF), will give a seminar highlighting his recent research discoveries in population genetics of coral reef organisms, as well as discuss his career path from academia to conservation to program management at NSF. This will be a short seminar with ample opportunities to talk about current opportunities for science funding and to demystify the grant application process at NSF. Questions and audience participation are encouraged.
