The Royal Society of Canada Atlantic Chapter, in partnership with Dalhousie University, is pleased to invite you to a free public lecture by 2012 Fellow John Cullen.

Responding to the unforeseen challenges of a knowledge-based society in an ever-changing environment, scientists must constantly expand the frontiers of what we know by conducting exploratory, fundamental research-the science of how things work. Reflecting on 40 years studying ocean ecosystems, Professor John Cullen, FRSC, will discuss how seemingly industry-irrelevant studies of nature have directly supported industrial innovation, economic development and environmental protection in Canada. 

The Herald Magazine's April Edition, "Oceans", will be launched following the lecture.

Reception to follow
Emcee: Ian Thompson, Associate Publisher of The Chronicle Herald
