Neil Shubin, professor of Organismal Biology and Anatomy at the University of Chicago, is widely celebrated for discovering the fossil fish Tiktaalik roseae, a fossil also known as the “fishapod” and dubbed the missing link between fish and land animals. He is the author of two popular science books and, in April 2014, hosted a three-part series, Your Inner Fish, on PBS.
In USC's inaugural Darwin Day event, Dr. Shubin will share his research on the evolution of limbs and how he uses diverse fossil findings to explore the anatomical transformations that have occurred throughout the ages. For more information on this public lecture, contact Adam Huttenlocker of USC's Paleosciences Research Consortium (firstname.lastname@example.org). This event is sponsored by the USC Provost and Office of Research.
