Listen: Chemist Herman Sintim on Bacterial Conversation

In fall 2016, Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer Herman Sintim discussed "bacterial conversation" and how it can be stopped to prevent infections from spreading. Sintim, a native of Ghana and graduate of Oxford University, is the Drug Discovery Professor of Chemistry and Organic Chemistry/Chemical Biology at Purdue University. 

This lecture was sponsored by the Swarthmore Chapter of Sigma Xi, the scientific research society, and is designed for a broad, non-specialist audience. He is introduced by Professor of Mathematics Deb Bergstrand, this year's president.
