Women's Building Formal Lounge

Join us for an enlightening evening with stellar women faculty Liz Mallott and Michele LeRoux, who recently established their lab groups at Washington University.

Microbes perform various functions indispensable to organisms or the environment. Research on microbes of diverse ecosystems (mDivE) is happening in St. Louis. The Living Earth Collaborative hosts the mDivE event series to foster interactions and collaborations among researchers working on or interested in this field.

In this event, Mallott and LeRoux will engage in a stimulating dialogue with Fangqiong Ling, assistant professor of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering and co-chair of the mDivE series. Their conversation will explore the exciting frontiers of research on microbial interactions across scales to address societal challenges, as well as their journeys in establishing their respective groups.
