Professor R. Thomas Zoeller, of the Department of Biology will be presenting the Distinguished Faculty Lecture.  His talk is entitled, "The Brain on Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals". 

Professor Zoeller’s research laboratory has pioneered the study of the role of thyroid hormone in brain development of the fetus.  These studies have led to a better understanding of the importance of thyroid function in pregnant women and have led to concern about the industrial chemicals to which all of us are exposed. Professor Zoeller will discuss how his findings have clear implications for public health protection.

Professor Zoeller will be presented with the Chancellor's Medal, the highesst recognition bestowed to faculty by the campus, at the conclusion of the lecture.
