The second MSE speak series wrapped up this week, and we had another very successful season! We heard about some incredible research, shared perspectives from other disciplines, and engaged in discussions on soil and food systems, human health, sanitation and water quality, ecological modeling to understand microbiomes better, and using the incredible diversity of the microbial world to better understand the diversity of human life. This year’s series featured 14 talks from researchers, including one that was a group presentation from an author team, and gathered 411 total attendees and 901 total registrations!
If you missed some or all of the talks, you are in luck! Most of the sessions were recorded and are available online through UMaine.
If you are eager to continue the conversation, MSE is putting together a summer symposium which will bring us together for a week in July to work on developing research skills. Stayed tuned for more details in the next few weeks!
