Public Health Research Seminar: Toxic Cyanobacterial Clooms in Lake Erie – How Science Can Inform Management and Policy

September 20, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Presented by George S. Bullerjahn
Distinguished Research Professor, Bowling Green State University, OH
Director NIH/NSF Great Lakes Center for Fresh Waters and Human Health

Toxic, bloom-forming cyanobacteria pose threats to global freshwater resources. Prevention and mitigation of blooms requires a scientific understanding of the cyanobacteria present, mechanisms of toxigenicity, and environmental conditions promoting growth. This presentation will examine how scientific studies can inform policy aiming to protect the public from these threats.
