Bozeman -- Michael Franklin, the newly named Ferguson Professor of Microbiology at Montana State University, will give his inaugural lecture at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28 in the Leon Johnson Lecture Hall on the MSU campus. His lecture, "Teaching and Research on DNA to Biofilms," will expand on his work in the field of molecular genetics that is internationally recognized.

Franklin, who joined the faculty at MSU in 1996, leads an active research laboratory studying the molecular genetics of the medically and environmentally significant microbe Pseudomonas aeruginosa, important in the study of cystic fibrosis. As a faculty researcher at the Center for Biofilm Engineering, he also works with multidisciplinary research teams to find solutions for industrially relevant problems.
