A six-member panel will address how molecular biology and genetics can help doctors individualize patient treatment. Clare Wofford, director of the University's 250th Anniversary celebration, said the topic was chosen because of its implications for the general population. Anthropology and Medicine Professor Baruch Blumberg, one of the three Nobel prizewinners and chairperson of the event, will begin the day with his talk on "Virus Adaptability." Topics for the lectures, which are all open to the public, range from ecogenetics, genomic plasticity, and retroviruses and oncogens. The event will be held Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Rainey Auditorium in the University Museum. -- Margaret McComish
