STEM Workshop with Aequor Inc.
Dr. Marilyn Bruno will describe her work as CEO of Aequor, Inc -- a biotech start-up founded by Cynthia Burzell, a microbiologist who used simple powers of observation and deduction to make a breakthrough discovery of remedies that can kill bacteria and fungi -- including the resistant Superbugs -- wherever they are found.  Aequor promotes the United Nations' "One Health" approach to controlling pandemic threats from 3 sources of transmission:  humans, animals and the environment: air, water, food and surfaces.  Marilyn will also describe Cynthia's work with NASA, solving the problem of bacteria and fungi in Space.  She will open ideas for the participants to develop an experiment to be conducted on board the International Space Station.
