On May 13, Pablo Debenedetti, Class of 1950 Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Dean for Research, will deliver the Bird/Stewart/Lightfoot Lecture in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.  The lectureship was inaugurated in 2001 to honor Wisconsin Professors R. Byron Bird, Warren E. Stewart, and Edwin N. Lightfoot and their landmark textbook, Transport Phenomena, which has educated generations of chemical engineers in this foundational subject, has been translated into five other languages, and is now in its second edition.  Debenedetti’s lecture will be entitled “Thermodynamic and Kinetic Models of the Emergence of Biological Homochirality”.
