Paleontologist to discuss T-Rex tissues Thursday

PROVO — Paleontologist Mary Schweitzer, an assistant professor at North Carolina State University, will present her latest findings on soft tissues preserved in dinosaurs during a Brigham Young University geology department seminar on Thursday at 11 a.m. in C-295 Eyring Science Center.

The tissues, found in the broken bones of a 68-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus found in Montana, include collagen and blood vessels as well as several types of cells. This discovery was originally presented in the March 25 issue of Science magazine.

Admission is free, and the public is welcome.
