BUFFALO, N.Y. — “Great science belongs to everybody.”

That sentiment is often expressed by S. James Gates Jr., Ph.D., John S. Toll Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, who will visit the University at Buffalo on April 3 to give the annual Rustgi lecture, presented by the Department of Physics in the College of Arts and Sciences.

His lecture, “The DNA of Reality and its Genome” will be held at 4:30 p.m. in 112 Norton Hall on the UB North (Amherst) Campus. It is free and open to the public.

Gates is a fervent popularizer of science and is familiar to audiences of such popular PBS specials as “The Elegant Universe,” “Breakthrough: The Changing Face of Science in America” and “A Science Odyssey.”
