The logo reflects interconnections among the science and mathematical disciplines in the College, using iconic representations of basic concepts in each field. Included are the basic atomic structure, the canonical double helix, a metabolomics network, and tectonic plates that determine the Earth’s lithosphere, all connected by the “Golden Spiral” described by the Fibonacci series, a simple numerical sequence with universal importance in the natural world. Together these reflect a theme of dynamic interaction in the natural and physical world, and symbolize some of the most important discoveries made by humankind.
