Primates, dinosaurs, fossils and bones: Two journeys of scientific discovery

We’re on a journey of scientific discovery.  A discovery that will help deepen our understanding of pre-historic and modern life on earth.   We’ll speak with an award-winning Stony Brook professor who has researched the evolution of primates and how long modern homo sapiens have been around. Then a Yale student shares how he found a new dinosaur species at the Peabody Museum. 


Dr. John Fleagle, Professor of Anatomical Sciences at Stony Brook University’s Renaissance School of Medicine


Chase Brownstein, Yale undergraduate and Research Associate at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center
