rescheduled from April 25
Microbial ecosystems sustain all forms of life -including humans—in all environments. However, there are many unknowns about how these diverse and complex communities form, evolve and survive.The study of microbial ecosystems requires biology –and a lot of physics and chemistry, all combined.Dr. Cordero’s lab is a leading force in this field. Dr. Cordero explains the physics and chemistry involved in the formation of these amazing -and essential- ecosystems.This is one of the most fascinating (and demanding) areas of science today.
