TED talks participantsOn Saturday, March 7, two Skyline College students and two alumni were invited to give TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) talks at the spring meeting of the Northern California Branch of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM).

Current Skyline College students Wafa Zeidan and Jackson Womack and alumni Jashwin Sagoo (UC Santa Cruz) and Keefah Khalil (SFSU) presented the research they completed in Biology 230 in Spring 2014 with Chris Case. Then Wafa, Jackson, Jash and Keefah teamed up to engage the audience in discussions about antibiotic resistance.

Other TED talks were given by students from UC Davis, CSU Sacramento, Stanford University, and CSU Chico. Wafa’s research was also accepted for presentation at the ASM national convention to be held in May in New Orleans.
