Sept. 3: Sculptor to discuss work

Visiting scholar Cameron Hockenson will discuss his work during a lecture to be held at 12:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 3, in Room 101 of the University of Delaware's Studio Arts Building.

Jaenisch is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine and has received the President’s National Medal of Science award.

The lecture, sponsored by UD’s Department of Biological Sciences, honors the late Dr. Clark, a professor at UD from 1946-81. His work advanced the ideas of teaching genetics in schools and understanding science as a part of culture. Throughout his career, he focused his research on radiation biology, developmental genetics, aging and human heredity.

The Arnold M. Clark Memorial Lecture in Molecular Genetics was generously established in 2005 by UD alums Howard E. Hudson Jr. and Patricia Coyne Hudson, both of the Class of 1963. The couple endowed the lectureship to honor the memory of Howard Hudson’s mentor, Arnold Clark.
