Prof. Frans B.M. de Waal is a Dutch/American behavioral biologist known
for his work on the social intelligence of primates. In this lecture, the
acclaimed author of The Age of Empathy (2009) shows how empathy comes
naturally to a great variety of animals, including humans. In his work
with monkeys and apes, de Waal has found many cases of one individual
coming to another's rescue and he argues that understanding empathy's
survival value in evolution can help to build a more just society based on
a more accurate view of human nature. De Waal is a Professor of Psychology
at Emory, Director of the Living Links Center at the Yerkes National
Primate Center, and a member of both the U.S. National Academy of Sciences
and the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences.

Dr. Sreyashi Jhumki Basu, '98 HumBio, a dedicated teacher and science
educator, worked passionately to create paths through science for
neglected and disadvantaged students and to remove inequities in the
teaching of science in America and access to higher education.
