The keynote speaker is Christine Lattin, a post-doctoral associate at Yale University. Dr. Lattin studies house sparrows to improve our understanding of the impact of stress on animals and humans. She hopes to learn how different neurotransmitters and hormones help animals successfully choose mates, raise young, escape from predators, and survive harsh winters and other challenging conditions. While stress helps animals and humans survive and cope with challenges, too much stress is bad and causes health problems. Yet we still don’t have a clear understanding of how and why stress switches from being helpful to harmful. She’s a self-professed animal lover with a background in bird rescue; yet has been targeted by PETA. She has responded in a very positive manner, and states that “I care deeply about openness and transparency in scientific research, which is why all of my publications are freely available [here] on my website.” Dr. Lattin will be starting a new position as Assistant Professor at Louisiana State University this fall.
