Microbiome Art

Dog with GoPro

Our research center works to bridge STEM and the arts, as some of our research teams are situated within the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Arts and Architecture. Whether this is supporting and commissioning microbiome artwork from Penn State students or incorporating the use of artwork into our research, we believe interdisciplinary research is the way to go.
