Philadelphia - - Chestnut Hill College welcomes alumna Marie A.
DiBerardino, Ph.D., professor Emerita of Biochemistry at MCP-Hahnemann
University, and internationally renowned leader in the field of genetics and developmental biology. Dr. DiBerardino is the Keynote speaker for the

Dr. DiBerardino's field of research is cloning, specifically frog cloning, which was a precursor to cloning mammals. She was a member of the Briggs and King research team that developed the technique of nuclear transplantation, instrumental in transforming a single cell into an organism. This technique revolutionized modern biological sciences. Dr. DiBerardino's successful reproduction of complete tadpoles preceded Dolly the sheep by over a decade, and has been described as one of the most important achievements in the history of development studies. Dr. DiBerardino's talk is free and open to the public. For information, please call 215.248.7105.
