The Kolshorn Lecture and Awards Ceremony, held each fall, is FWCB’s biggest annual event. FWCB invites a distinguished scientist or conservationist to campus to give the lecture.

The Annual Kolshorn Lecture and Awards Ceremony will be held September 20, 2018. Events Scheduled 5 - 8:30 pm starting with Award Recognition on St. Paul Campus and Kolshorn Lecture at the new Bell Museum. This year’s lecture will be presented by Dr. Jonathan Losos of Washington University. Drawing from his new book, “Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance and the Future of Evolution,” Dr. Losos explores recent research, including his own pioneering experimental work with lizards on Caribbean islands to reveal what the latest breakthroughs in evolutionary biology can tell us about one of the greatest ongoing debates in science: is evolution’s path predictable?
