UT Closed April 19; Science Forum Resumes April 26

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville will be closed Friday, April 19 for spring recess.

The UT Science Forum will resume our Friday lecture series April 26 with Karen Lloyd, professor of microbiology, who will present “Life One Mile Below the Surface of Earth.”

Microorganisms living underneath the surface of the earth have a total carbon mass of 15 to 23 billion tons, hundreds of times more than that of humans. In her presentation, Professor Lloyd will discuss these findings from a study by the Deep Carbon Observatory. This will be the final lecture for the spring 2019 series.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, April 26 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
