Welcome new faculty!

The Department of Biology is delighted to welcome two new faculty members, Drs. Nicole Templeman and Greg Owens. Dr. Templeman’s research explores the mechanisms that influence aging and aging-related processes, using mice and nematodes as models. She comes to UVic from a recent Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship in Coleen Murphy's lab at Princeton University. Dr. Owens studies the evolutionary genomics of adaptation, focusing especially on sunflowers. Greg comes to us from a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship in Rasmus Nielsen's lab at the University of California, Berkeley. Welcome Greg and Nicole!
