The Michael A. Savageau Lecture in Molecular Systems Biology fund will support UC Davis in bringing to campus prominent speakers who exemplify the creative use of mathematical and computational methods to achieve mechanistic understanding of function, design, and evolution of molecular systems, and to enrich this multidisciplinary activity at UC Davis through the speakers’ interactions with both faculty and students. We hope to raise enough to endow this fund and generate an annual lecture.
The fund honors Distinguished Professor Emeritus Michael A. Savageau for his pioneering research that explores the function, design and evolution of cellular and molecular networks. Dr. Savageau, a member of the National Academy of Medicine and Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, uses quantitative systems biology to characterize the design principles for gene circuits that control important patterns of cellular behavior.
