2009-04-15 by

Dr. Tyrone Hayes, an integrative biologist from UC Berkeley, delivered this lecture as the keynote speaker for the 2009 Undergraduate Research and Discovery Symposium.

In his keynote, Dr. Hayes shared his research focus on the effects of endocrine-disrupting pesticides on amphibian growth, development, reproduction and immune function, and how these studies predict effects in other wildlife and humans.

A tip to listeners, stay tuned during the last two minutes of the lecture, Prof. Hayes “spins a rhyme” as he puts it, with a bit of integrative biology performance poetry.

This podcast was recorded on April 14, 2009.
