From Peppermints to Pit Vipers
With 2017 Canada Gairdner International Award laureate Dr. David Julius
Our senses enable us to interpret and experience the world in which we live. Sensory systems are fine-tuned by evolution to detect signals that are most relevant to an animal’s lifestyle and environment. How do spices and snakes help us understand this important sensory process while generating new ideas for basic research and drug development?
Lecture will be moderated by Christine Birak, CBC National News Health and Science Reporter.
