Bats are unfamiliar and even feared, perhaps because they are nocturnal and often live in dark places like caves and attics. Yet, they figure prominently in the folklore of many ancient and current societies. In this talk, the speaker will dispel myths and discuss some of the most extraordinary aspects of the biology of these flying mammals. He will describe how research on these animals could be relevant to you, such as how lifespan can be extended, and explain why everyone should strive to be more like vampires.

This event is a partnership between the UMD College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences and The Clarice and MilkBoy ArtHouse, a local crossroads for dynamic entertainment, social gathering and creative dining in downtown College Park, Maryland. This event is also sponsored by the UMD Science Alumni Network.
