Douglas Anderson, Associate Professor, Humanities, has been invited to be the co-keynote speaker at a symposium in the Netherlands during the April 2014 annual meeting of the Royal Dutch Society for Microbiology and the Dutch Association of Medical Microbiology.
Every ten years, the Dutch government awards the Leeuwenhoek Medal to the scientist judged to have made the most significant contribution to microbiology during the preceding decade. In 2014, it will be awarded during this annual meeting and the symposium will be in celebration of that award. The co-keynote speaker is Lodewijk Palm of the Descartes Centre at the University of Utrecht and editor of Antony van Leeuwenhoek’s 19-volume Collected Letters. The keynote topic is how the letters relate to newly uncovered information about Leeuwenhoek’s life that Anderson has put online at Lens on Leeuwenhoek.
