Biology Seminar: Chasing Microbes Down the Rabbit Hole
Lori Banks, Assistant Professor of Biology and Africana at Bates College, is our first invited speaker of '23-24. Inspired by the era of bioterrorism and biodefense, Dr. Banks was intrigued by the ubiquitous threat of infectious diseases. Her desire to help fight these pathogens has led her from biology into biophysics and computational chemistry. Her current quest to fight rotavirus infection follows this trend by pushing the boundaries of AI, molecular dynamics simulations, and more.
