The Science Enrichment Program at MUW will be offering a six-hour workshop focusing on microbiology on Saturday, December 8th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m in Parkinson Hall on the MUW campus.
As many topics are covered, emphasis will be placed on degree programs and careers along with applied concepts (hands-on). Students will rotate between mini-lectures, activities, demonstrations and labs. MUW Microbiologist Dr. Lauren Brandon will serve as instructor for this workshop. Earning degrees from Ohio State University and the University of Chicago, Dr. Brandon teaches General Microbiology, Microbiology for Majors, Food Microbiology and Microbial Genetics at MUW. She is also involved in ongoing research, sharing a cutting edge research laboratory with Dr. Ross Witwam.
