In the world of scientific research, microbes punch well above their weight and their size. Through these tiny creatures, scientists have learned fundamental aspects of biology: the genetic code, the concept of the gene and the central dogma. Microbes are also master cell biologists themselves as they have learned how to manipulate and coexist with host cells for millions of years. Through their close interactions with eukaryotic cells, microbes have led us to understand basic mechanisms that drive cell shape, motility and organization. By their manipulation of a host cell, microbial pathogens have revealed how our own cells function. Join us at the Life Sciences Symposium to learn for yourself all that microbes have to teach us about biology of cells.

This invitation has been extended to the KSC community by our partners at NH-INBRE.
