Dr. Kim Orth, Professor of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, will present the final 2013 installment of the President’s Lecture Series on Oct. 17 at 4 p.m. in the Tom and Lula Gooch Auditorium on the South Campus.

The title of the lecture by Dr. Orth, a W.W. Caruth, Jr. Scholar in Biomedical Research, is “Black Spot, Black Death, Black Pearl: Tales of Bacterial Virulence Factors.” Her work has led to a new understanding of the mechanisms cells use for survival, and it has important implications, especially in understanding and potentially treating infectious diseases.
