Wonders of the Microbial World

In this lecture, Scott Chimileski, Microbiologist and Photographer, Kolter Lab, HMS, and Roberto Kolter, Professor, Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology, HMS, will share their fascination with the wonders of the microbial world through vignettes and images from their new book, Life at the Edge of Sight: A Photographic Exploration of the Microbial World (Harvard University Press). Their presentation will feature a stunning visual exploration of microbes, from the pioneering findings of a seventeenth-century visionary to magnificent close-ups of the inner workings and cooperative communities of Earth’s most prolific—but often invisible—organisms.

Presented by Harvard Museum of Natural History, the Microbial Sciences Initiative at Harvard, and Harvard University Press. Free event parking at 52 Oxford Street Garage.
