"It's a Microbial World, but That Isn't a Bad Thing"

Associate Professor of Biological Sciences Pam Brown

Bacteria tend to get a bad reputation because they can cause disease. But did you know that most bacteria don't cause disease and don't deserve that bad rep?

Bacteria are everywhere and have positive and negative impacts on almost everything from agriculture to sustainability and human health. We will discuss how small but mighty bacteria impact our everyday lives (for example, food and beverage production--especially anything fermented!) and touch on some of the bacteria-centric research being done at MU.

Committed to engaging with the communities it serves, MU's College of Arts and Science offers Beyond Campus, a series that showcases the range and relevance of the college's research and programs, which serve as the foundation for all undergraduates at MU, whether they major in an A&S discipline or not. The events in this series are intended for the general public, including alumni, business and community leaders, and prospective students. All are welcome.
