|INTIMATE STRANGERS: UNSEEN LIFE ON EARTH|
What kinds of bacteria are growing in your sink or your refrigerator?
How about on your keyboard at work? Does soap really reduce the
amount of bacteria on your hands? Dr. Keith Lampel of the Food and Drug Administration helps citizen scientists discover the world of bacteria in and around us.
Filmed at the Marian Koshland Science Museum in Washington,
D.C., this two-part science lab kicked off with a hands-on activity in
the museum to observe the invisible bacteria that are present all
around us. Attendees were shown how to prepare samples in the museum
and took lab supplies with them for further investigation in their
homes, offices and schools. For the second part of program, participants
shared their scientific endeavors from the previous week as Dr. Lampel
answered their questions and discussed recent research at the FDA, new
technologies, and new initiatives in food safety.
Dr. Keith Lampel is the Director of the Division of
Microbiology within the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition at
the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). His research interests include
the development of rapid detection methods for food-borne pathogens
using DNA-based technology, and identifying the genes in these bacteria
that are involved in the development of disease.
