Antibiotics. ‘Tis the season for…sniffles. Join us at the next Science Café for a conversation on the war we wage on germs. We’ll have a fun hour of discussion, games, music, and a talk by UMass Professor and founder of the MA Academy of Sciences, Dr. Peg Riley. Dr. Riley will discuss her own work on our need for new drugs to combat germs, and how we find them. The event begins at 5:30pm, with light snacks provided and drinks available for purchase.
