Parker H. Petit Institute of Bioengineering and Bioscience: 2021 Suddath Symposium

Thursday, January 28, 2021 - 1:00pm to Friday, January 29, 2021 - 5:00pm
Origins and Early Evolution of Life

The origin of life on Earth is one of the most intriguing questions of all time and has been a topic of active research for almost a century. The 2021 Suddath Symposium, to be presented virtually over two afternoons (EST), will bring together leaders in origins of life research who will share, in a widely accessible format, recent progress in answering central questions in this field, including: How did RNA, polypeptides, and polysaccharides first emerge on the early Earth? The symposium will provide a forum to celebrate the legacy of the NSF/NASA Center for Chemical Evolution, which has been headquartered at Georgia Tech for the past decade.
