Wonderlust Friday Forum: Antibiotics
- Friday, April 12, 2013 at 12:00pm
- Pilgrim Congregational Church
Jovanka Voyich, a professor in MSU's Department of Immunology and Infectious Diseases, will be the speaker for Wonderlust's Friday Forum on April 12 at noon at Pilgrim Congregational Church.
Infections caused by drug-resistant bacterial strains known as Super Bugs have become a growing concern as they spread in hospitals, nursing homes and beyond. This is a primary focus of Dr. Voyich's research.
Growing up on a Montana ranch, she developed an early interest in both animal and human medicine. She received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Montana State and is well qualified to help people better understand the complexity of interactions of antibiotics and bacterial pathogens.
Friday Forums are free and open to the public. Attendees are invited to bring lunch. Cookies and coffee are provided.
