Citizen Science Sept

Join us on September 1st for the next talk in our La Jolla Riford Library Citizen Science Lecture Series to learn about Giardia lamblia,  the major cause of worldwide waterborne diarrhea.  Parasite life cycles are quite fascinating- find out how scientists are gaining a deeper understanding of the role of Giardia’s cell cycle in maintaining the parasites life cycle to develop successful intervention strategies.  Hopefully you won’t be afflicted with this parasite, but if you are, you’ll get some insight into how to be rid of it!
