Professor of the Department of Biology Gregor Fussmann shows a chemostat with planktonic organisms to Christopher Chalcraft, U0 Science, as part of the first annual Soup and Science. The lunchtime series runs from January 9 to the 13, and is organized by the Office for Undergraduate Research in Science so that new professors can talk about their research to undergraduates.
