Under Our Feet: The Secret World of Microbes

Class 3 in the Fall Lyceum series, Hidden in Plain Sight.

Virtually every surface on Earth is covered by structured communities of cells called biofilms. They are ecosystems that, at the level of the microbial world, are as dense and diverse as a tropical rainforest. Paul Smith’s professor Scott Chimileski will discuss the importance of these hidden worlds and describe his work in creating new ways of imaging the processes and behaviors of these microbial structures.

SPEAKER: Scott Chimileski is a microbiologist, science photographer, author and public speaker. Before coming to Paul Smith’s, Scott worked with the Harvard Microbial Sciences InitiativeHarvardX, and the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Visit his website HERE.
