Our world and our health are governed by things unseen – invisible communities of microbes in our bodies and in our soil. In her work as a microbiologist, Jo Handelsman is trying to understand how these invisible microorganisms communicate, interact, and play crucial roles in infectious diseases.

Handelsman, a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a former White House science advisor, will be on the Colorado State University campus Sunday, Oct. 28, to deliver the 19th annual Thornton-Massa Lecture, 3:30-5 p.m. in the Lory Student Center Theatre. Free and open to the public, the Thornton-Massa lecture is an endowed annual series hosted by the College of Natural Sciences and the College of Agricultural Sciences. Handelsman’s talk is titled “A microbial planet for agriculture.”
