    Nobel Laureate Named Fox Family Speaker

    Is our internal clock different from a fruit fly? Essentially, no, according to 2017 Nobel Laureate Dr. Michael Rosbash of Brandeis University. Wheeler welcomed Dr. Rosbash as our 2019 Fox Family Speaker, February 15. Rosbash, who with two colleagues was honored for discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm, visited Wheeler to discuss his research.  See a video of his presentation and listen to a fun radio interview with two of our students here.

    Each year the Fox Family Speaker Series at Wheeler brings an adult to campus to talk to students in all grade levels and share their passion for learning. Past speakers include Dr. Jane Goodall, RBG documentary producer Betsy West '69, and recent Metropolitan Opera composer Nico Muhly '99.
