“An Evening with the World’s Leading Marine Microbiologists” in San Jose

Just got this and am sharing:

Dear Dr. Eisen,

The Tech museum in San Jose wanted to invite you to a very special event of ours that might be of your interest. On July 30th, 16 exceptional marine microbiologists from all over the country will gather in The Tech for an evening of conversation with our local community.

The Tech would love for you to join us! I attached a more detailed description of the event below. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. And we would also highly appreciate if you could forward this email to any of your colleagues and students who might be interested in coming.

“The oxygen in every second breath we take is produced by microbes in our oceans—they are thought to produce about 50 percent of the oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere. Yet, we know surprisingly little about these tiny organisms.”

—The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Marine Microbiology Initiative

The Tech welcomes 16 world-renowned scientists for an evening of discussion and discovery.

Please join us to learn more about our diverse ocean ecosystems through robust conversation with some of the most innovative minds of our time, and to connect with bio-focused community groups and individuals. Listen to Professor Kay Bidle of Rutgers University explore “The Invisible World of Marine Microbes: How Earth’s Smallest Living Things Have the Biggest Impact on How Our Ocean Works.”

Mingle with the 16 Investigators of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Marine Microbiology Initiative:
