Huge conference, tiny virus

Huge conference, tiny virus

Tiffany, a PhD student in the Roach lab, attended her first phage conference this week in the beautiful Olympia, Washington! Phages are the world’s tiniest organisms: and as viruses that infect bacteria, they have recently gotten the scientific world’s eye as a promising treatment for bacterial infections. Tiffany had a blast presenting her research, chugging a TON of coffee (as one does at conferences), and attending workshops of the latest and greatest in the phage world, including her own mentor, Dr. Dwayne Roach.

There was even dance parties. Lots and lots of dance parties. Sounds like a blast, Tiff!
