Dr. Dustin Rubenstein '99, Associate Professor of Biology at Columbia University, returned to Dartmouth in April to report on his research on how organisms adapt to changes in the environment. While at Dartmouth, Dr. Rubenstein enrolled in the biology department's foreign study program (FSP) and was an undergraduate researcher in Professor Richard Holmes' lab. His work with Prof. Holmes was published in Science.
Dr. Rubenstein reports that his time at Dartmouth continues to influence and inform his work. His experience on FSP led him to create a field research program at Cornell and later at Columbia based on the FSP model. The Dartmouth biology department FSP program will celebrate its 40th year in 2017.
