Science stars head to Dartmouth for the E.E. Just Symposium
Date:9/18/2012

"This is not your father's symposium. This is a gathering of eagles," says Dartmouth theoretical physicist Stephon Alexander in describing the inaugural E.E. Just Symposium. The conference is drawing some of the most prominent figures in the sciences to Dartmouth, September 27-29, 2012. Alexander is the newly appointed E.E. Just 1907 Professor of Natural Sciences.

The symposium celebrates the spirit of scientific courage and interdisciplinary research epitomized by E. E. Just's scientific contributions. "Dealing with the barriers of prejudice and discrimination, Just demonstrated vision and courage as he strived to advance his science," says Alexander.

Ernest Everett Just, Dartmouth Class of 1907, was a pioneering cellular biologist and one of the institution's earliest African American graduates. He was a founder of cellular holism, a concept that is only now appreciated for its significance. His approach brought together the sciences of embryology and genetics, foreshadowing today's epigeneticsthe cutting-edge discipline focused on heritable changes that occur outside of DNA and control gene expression.

String theorist Jim Gates (Sylvester James Gates Jr.), a science and technology adviser to President Obama and a familiar face on PBS's NOVA series, will kick off the symposium with a keynote address. Gates's talk on September 27 (5 p.m. in the Oopik Auditorium at the 1978 Life Sciences Center) and all the symposium presentations are open to the public and geared toward professionals and nonprofessionals alike.

The list of luminaries at the symposium includes University of California-Berkeley mathematician, playwright, author, and actor Edward Frenkel; Professor of Cell Biology and Neuroscience George Langford, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University and Dartmouth's first E.E. Just Professor; Princeton's award-winning theoretical physicist David Spergel, who chairs the National Academy of Arts and S
