Charles Darwin (1809-1882)
conjoined decades of keen field observations with his investigative
spirit and the knowledge of his day to produce what some consider the
most significant scientific works ever authored. As relevant as ever,
Darwin’s worldview offers a basis for understanding – and
solving – the 21st century’s ecological crisis.
Borrowing from the words of Theodosius Dobzhansky, the great evolutionary
biologist, “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light

Dr. David Lynn's original research into the
chemistry of life's beginnings has brought him wide recognition well
outside the scientific community.
The David G. Lynn Group at Emory University works to understand the
structures and forces that enable supramolecular self-assembly, how
chemical information can be stored and translated into new molecular
entities, and how the forces of evolution can be harnessed in new structures
with new function. Such knowledge offers tremendous promise for discoveries
in fields as diverse as drug design and genome engineering, pathogenesis
and genome evolution, functional nanoscale materials and the origins
of living systems. He has served as Chair of Emory's Department of Chemistry
