In April 2013, DU Physics & Astronomy welcomed to campus particle physicist Lisa Randall, Frank B. Baird, Jr. Professor of Science at Harvard University. As part of the American Physical Society's April Meeting, Prof. Randall accepted the Andrew Gemant Award from the American Institute of Physics and presented a public lecture entitled "Truth, Beauty, and Other Scientific Misconceptions."
