The Wells College chapter of Phi Beta Kappa is pleased to welcome its 2019 visiting scholar, Hazel Sive, professor of biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sive's keynote lecture, "The Right Size Head," will expound upon her groundbreaking research, which focuses on neurodevelopmental and mental health disorders, as well as fundamental processes underlying brain and craniofacial development.
The lecture will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. in the Hostetter Lecture Hall (Stratton Hall 209). Admission is free and all are welcome.
During her two-day visit to Wells on Oct. 15–16, in addition to delivering her keynote lecture, Professor Sive will visit several classes. During those sessions, she will engage with students and speak on a variety of subjects—including science-related topics like "Fat and Brain Health," as well as broader issues that touch upon society at large, such as cultivating a personal sense of belonging, and promoting a culture of respect for women in academia.
