Checking in With Dean Forbes - March 2018
What are you most excited about at the moment?
I'm excited about our new Cellular and Organismal Physiology major. The University of Minnesota Board of Regents approved the new major in February at its most recent meeting. The major will cover the physiology of all major organism groups — microbes, plants, animals, humans — and include the evolutionary underpinnings of organismal physiology. More information is coming, but the new major is going to be available to our undergraduates beginning this fall.
