First-class online event: A tiny initiative makes a big difference: Tiny Earth- studentsourcing antibiotic discovery from soil
Are you bored from Covid-19 these days? Do you need a mental boost, ideas, inspiration and appreciation? Would you like to get practical experience and make a difference with your work? If yes, this is the event for you!
Mark your calendar on July 8, 2021 and reserve 3 to 5 p.m. for a unique online meeting via Zoom.
The Tiny Earth project connects students from all over the world to find new antibiotic-producing microorganisms from soil to fight antibiotic resistance. Thus, this is our opportunity to help make the world better.
