Translating the Language of Life:  Chemical Ecology as Planetary Drug Discovery
by Dr. Mark Hay 
Georgia Institute of Technology
Most organisms on Earth have neither eyes nor ears--and  must decide to run, eat, or mate with the thing next to  them based on chemical cues. Just as chemical biologists  discovered treatments for diseases by understanding cell  signaling, chemical ecologists can provide new options  for curing environmental collapse by understanding  these chemically-mediated interactions in nature. The  presentation will focus on how understanding, translating,  and using this chemical cross-talk among marine  species can provide new and powerful options for curing  environmental collapse in marine systems.

About the Speaker
Dr. Mark Hay  is a professor at Georgia Institute of Technology  and an experimental field ecologist who investigates the underlying  chemical mechanisms generating patterns found in the field. Most of his work is  focused on tropical coral reefs and in freshwater lakes and streams. The majority  of his research focuses on plant-herbivore and predator-prey interactions. Additionally,  Dr. Hay uses basic ecological and evolutionary investigations to facilitate  management, conservation, and restoration of aquatic systems. Dr. Hay is the  co-director of the Aquatic Ecology Center and the Teasley Chair in Environmental Biology at Georgia Tech.
