Microorganisms (or microbes) help to sustain all life on Earth. They are incredibly diverse in their shape and size, and in the roles they play in the environment. Some are beneficial, and some are harmful, but if you ask a microbiologist, all are fascinating!

The Brisbane Joint Academic Microbiology Seminars (BrisJAMS) organising committee would like to give students, researchers, and members of the general public alike the opportunity to do just that in our National Science Week event, Ask a Microbiologist.

Microbiologists from a range of backgrounds are invited to sit on an expert Q & A panel for the evening, at the Embassy Craft Beer Bar in Brisbane City. Each invitee will give a short presentation of their work and an explanation of their career path, with the majority of the evening dedicated to open questions from the audience. Think, “what is your most exciting scientific discovery?”, “what do you enjoy most about your job?”, “what does your favourite microbe do?”, and, “what advice do you have for others wanting to pursue a similar career path?”

This event is sponsored by the International Society for Microbial Ecology (ISME) through their Ambassador Program, to promote and strengthen the discipline of microbial ecology (and microbiology) as widely as possible.
