Julia Weil rescheduled for May 15 meeting.

Join MTOS for its monthly meeting on Wednesday, January 17, at St. George’s Episcopal Church, 2425 S. Germantown Rd., Germantown, TN 38138.

Julia Weil, PhD student at the University of Memphis, will be our speaker for the evening. She will discuss research done in her lab at the university and work with the House Finch conjunctivitis system to investigate why and how individuals within a species respond differently to disease.

Julia will share some exciting findings from a project that looked at the co-evolution of House Finches with conjunctivitis across the past couple of decades. She will also briefly chat about her proposed dissertation work, which investigates whether finch personality could play a role for that variation in disease response within a species.

The meeting is free, open to everyone, and includes social time with light refreshments..
