KCPW is the media sponsor of the Utah Museum of Natural History’s Nature of Things Lecture Series. This year, the series focuses on the science of being human. On Thursday at 7pm at the Salt Lake City Main Library, Dr. June Round, a microbiologist at the University of Utah will try to answer the question what makes us human? focusing especially on how bacteria shape human evolution and development.
KCPW’s Roger McDonough spoke with Dr. Round to get a preview of the lecture she’ll give.
