A leader in microbiology research, Dr. Stanley Falcow, will present a public lecture on human history and infectious disease May 2 at 7p.m. in Hamilton’s Performing Arts Center.

Dr. Falcow, a part-time resident of the Bitterroot Valley, is retired but still teaches at Stanford University in California. He has studied bacteria such as Salmonella and E coli. His groundbreaking work earned him the Lasker-Koshland Award in 2008.

He has also researched the history of disease and will show examples of the relationship of infections to humans through time, including the European Reformation and Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution and into the present.

In a news release, Dr. Falcow noted, “Microbes have changed the course of wars, they have brought poverty to large geographic areas and led to a concept in hygiene that we now call ‘Public Health.'”

The free presentation is part of a community outreach series from the Rocky Mountain Laboratories, part of the Natinal Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a component of the National Institutes of Health. The Performing Arts Center is at Hamilton High School on Fairgrounds Road.
