Dinner with Dean Peter Bogucki
Why can some people drink milk and eat dairy products while others cannot?
Figuring out the origins and spread of lactase persistence, as the ability to digest milk as an adult is called, requires coordinated research by archaeologists, chemists, and molecular biologists.
Peter Bogucki, known to 20% of Forbes students as the associate dean for undergraduate affairs in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, is an archaeologist who has been involved for several decades in the study of prehistoric dairy production and is collaborating with scientists from other disciplines to understand how people in prehistoric Europe, began to use milk over 7000 years ago.
He will discuss this work and how it fits into larger questions of prehistoric life in a dinner talk on Monday, December 9.
