Holiday Lecture: Bacteria’s Deadly Design

NO MORE SPACE: The 10 slots were filled by 6:00 PM, Wednesday, December 12

The Rockefeller University will be hosting its 2012 Holiday Lecture on Science for High School Students on Thursday, December 27 from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM. The Rockefeller Holiday Lecture was established in 1959 and modeled on the popular series of science lectures started by Michael Faraday in 1826. This year’s lecture entitled "Bacteria’s Deadly Design: How Earth’s most prevalent life-form uses a microscopic syringe to invade and attack" will be presented by Dr. C. Erec Stebbins, Associate Professor and head of the Laboratory of Structural Microbiology.

Let me know immediately if you wish to attend. I need to submit a list of names by Thursday, December 13 or they will not hold a space for us. This is a long event with a lunch break in the middle. The Rockefeller University is located on York Avenue and East 66th Street in Manhattan near the Hunter College subway station. You will have to provide your own transportation since DoE MetroCards are not valid during Winter Break. (I will reimburse you with a single use MetroCard that can be used for transportation during regular school hours.) Extra credit will be awarded for students who attend and complete the public lecture assignment.
