The Control of Breathing and Airway Defense (CoBAD) Seminar Series featured Dr. Colleen Farmer on Friday, May 12 at 3:00pm ET. Dr. Farmer’s research aims to understand the evolutionary sequence of events involved in major vertebrate transitions, especially aspects of the evolution of the cardiopulmonary system and the transition from ectothermy to endothermy. Her seminar is entitled: Evolution and diversification of aerodynamic valves in vertebrate lungs.
