Brett Finlay: Thursday’s “Adventures in Science” Talk

(I was a week too early when I posted this last time, so here it is again…)

Brett is giving a talk at the Michael Smith Building this coming thursday (Nov 1st) at 12:30pm. Specifically, it’s been titled as follows, “Killer germs: Confronting the microbial menace.”

FYI, Brett is a one of most high profile scientists at UBC, is a great speaker, and is also usually good for some stunning visuals.

Instead, if you google “YouTube” and “Brett Finlay”, what you end up getting are Brett Hart wrestling videos…
