Proposal to bring Frances Collins, Director of the NIH, to UCLA to discuss the intersections of faith and science, in particular how his work on the genome project is in concert with his personal religious beliefs. In addition, the proposal plans for Dr. Collins to speak with faculty regarding pedagogy related to issues of religion and science, as well as, hopefully, to discuss the development of interdisciplinary courses.
