Medical Museum Science Café: "Bacterial Ecology: With Friends Like These...,"

with Maj. Benjamin Kirkup, Deputy Director of Wound Infections at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research

When: Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Where: Silver Spring Civic Building, Fenton Room

Did you know that within the human body, there are 10 times as many microbial cells as human cells? Bacterial ecology has changed radically in the past 10 years to encompass a newly disclosed diversity all around us, and to demonstrate the amazing impact of small distinctions among bacteria. Join Maj. Kirkup for a discussion on ecology, infectious disease research, and how human-bacteria relationships are shaped by daily behaviors.


Free! Open to the public, no RSVP required.
