Serendipity in Practice: Breakthroughs in Nutrition of Animals and Humans
Siebel Center 201 N. Goodwin Urbana
Many great discoveries in science have been made by carefully pursuing unintended and ancillary findings. Examples will be given from UIUC comparative nutrition research to illustrate how serendipity can (and does) work. Research on copper, niacin, and vitamin D-3 will be covered in the lecture.
