Dr. Laurie Connell, of the University of Maine, is involved in a number of research projects spanning from the development of field detection instruments for the detrimental potato wart, to the analysis of paralytic shellfish toxins, to the extreme microbial habitats at the southern most region of our planet. Along with a team of collaborators, Dr. Connell has taken scientific journeys to Antarctica since 1990. Last month, MO BIO Laboratories was fortunate enough to receive a visit from this exceptionally interesting scientist. She shared images and stories from these Antarctic trips, that at times seem other-worldly.
