The forum will address persistent questions about race and human identity in biological science and society. It will feature a presentation by Professor Charmaine Royal (Duke University).  Professor Royal is a leading expert on the ethical, social, scientific, and clinical implications of human genetics and genomics and directs the Duke Center on Genomics, Race, Identity, Difference and the Duke Center for Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation.  She will discuss the historical origins of the scientific concept of race, how scientists and the public think about race today, and her approach to teaching about race and genomics.  Her presentation will be followed by a conversation with the audience moderated by Terry Committee members Brandon Ogbunu and Thomas Near (both of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology).
