With topics ranging from water sanitation to aging genes, a variety of expert scientists will present insights this fall in five Suter Science Seminars at Eastern Mennonite University. The seminars are free and open to the public, and made possible by the sponsorship of the Daniel B. Suter Endowment in Biology and the co-sponsorship of supporting programs.
All seminars are held in room 106 of the Suter Science Center.

Named in honor of long-time EMU biology professor Daniel B. Suter (1920-2006), the endowment was established in 1986 through the generous donations of alumni and friends and currently consists of over $1 million of invested funds. EMU hopes to double the Suter Endowment in order to more adequately support distinguished faculty and to increase scholarship aid to deserving students. For more information, click here.
