Patrick Phillips
Patrick Phillips, PhD, is an expert in ecology and evolution, the biology of aging, molecular biology, and the genetics of complex traits. His presentation will use his research on the biological basis of aging and the quest to identify genes and chemical agents that can increase health span and longevity to illustrate the essential relationships among science, technology, and the societal impact of research. These are some of the central themes of the new Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, which holds the promise of dramatically changing the face of the University of Oregon and the City of Eugene as a whole. Phillips will provide an overview of the vision for the Knight Campus and the timeline for its implementation.
