Dr. Amy Vollmer

On Monday, October 16, the Lecture in the Sciences series continues with Dr. Amy Vollmer, a Phi Beta Kappa Distinguished Scholar from Swarthmore College.

The presentation titled, “What bacteria can teach us about stress response,” will begin at 4:00 p.m. in Peterson Chapel, Cowles Hall.

Dr. Vollmer will discuss how bacteria sense and respond to stress with great speed and specificity, and conserve energy so that the response to one stressor does not compromise the capacity to respond to additional stresses.
