A TALE OF TWO PARASITES: FROM A REGIONAL TO A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE
Evening Lecture
Location: Schmidt Conference Center
Start: 7:00PM
End: 8:00PM
Speaker: Katrina Lohan
Affiliation: SERC
Marine parasites receive lots of attention for causing devastating diseases. But we still know very little about where they occur, how many there are and how they are spread. Highlighting two parasites in the Chesapeake Bay, Dr. Katrina Lohan outlines what we do and don't know about them, including how humans may be responsible for their continued expansion around the globe.
