Here are the last 3 Biology Department seminars I have delivered:

 

Microscopy of Drosophilas 6 rhodopsins, Fall, 2002

 

Vision in the ultraviolet, Fall, 2005

This was later recorded as a PodCast when it was given as a lecture in a physiology class

 

Why is there lutein in your vitamin pill and what does that have to do with Drosophila vision? Fall, 2007

This was later recorded as a PodCast when it was given as a lecture in a physiology class

 

Also I presented a short lecture for SLUs Tribeta (biology club) February 2009

Drosophila as a model for studies of vision PodCast

 

In September 2009, I gave a lecture on vitamin A for  Current research in vitamins (Nutrition and Dietetics) (PodCast)

 

In February 2010, I gave a journal club at Neuro at Noon (pdf) (PodCast)
