Christina Paulson (left), a biology graduate student in SMU’s Dedman College, talked about the impact of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution on her life and work as part of the University’s celebration of Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday Feb. 12, 2009. Paulson told of her own, humorous introduction to Darwin in 5th grade (“As a 10-year-old, the message I took home … was not to put beetles in my mouth”). She also talked about how “the desperate passion and curiosity that Darwin felt for science” has affected her own research, in which she studies a species of small worm to explore ways to treat illnesses and diseases in humans.
