Join guest speaker,Madhan Tirumalai, Ph.D., a research assistant professor in the Department of Biology and Biochemistryas he talks about extremophiles. Extremophiles are organisms that can survive and thrive under extremes of temperature, pH, pressure, radiation, and other hostile environments. They are often considered model organisms to better understand locations in the Universe where life might have arisen or continue to exist.
