Department of Biological Sciences

Kent State University has considerable strength in a broad range of  neurosciences from molecular biology to behavior and addresses through its research a wide variety of neurological diseases and illnesses.  The purpose of the symposium is to provide an opportunity for scholarly interactions with internationally renowned obesity neuroscientists as well as to provide a venue for the general public to learn more about the neural basis of obesity.

April. 3, 7 p.m.

Keynote Address,

Michael Rosenbaum, M.D.

The term “biopond” stems from the employment of a pond as a teaching tool for biodiversity, evolution and ecology. The main purpose of this study is to record the effect of urbanization, or the building of a new science building, on the diversity of the moth and caddisfly populations at the biopond.
