Look back into the depths of time and get a new sense of where we all come from, as The Exhibit Museum of Natural History at the University of Michigan presents Explore Evolution, an exhibit that explores seven major research projects that guided our understanding of the nature of life. Some of the projects include research done by Rosemary and Peter Grant on Galapagos Finches, Philip Gingerich’s research on fossil discoveries of walking whales, Svante Pääbo’s research on the genetic ties between humans and chimps, and Charles Wood’s research on the rapid evolution of the HIV virus. The exhibit features opportunities for visitors to experience research conducted by the scientists. Ongoing exhibit.
