Following In Darwin's Footsteps
What motivates young people to become scientists?
We’re going along with Mari Jaramillo and Samoa Asigau, two young women scientists from opposite sides of the Pacific Ocean, whose professional aspirations have taken them to the Galapagos Islands.
Following in Darwin’s Footsteps will profile these dynamic UMSL graduate students as they venture to the islands made famous by Charles Darwin himself. Their research will focus on a type of avian malaria threatening native bird populations on the islands.
Our science reporter Véronique LaCapra will join them on their trip and will share her observations along the way.
