Bama Microbes

Chris Youssef is a Biology M.A. AMP student who finished his undergraduate degree in May of 2022. Chris has begun a creative project where he collects and showcases microbes from around UA’s campus on social media. You can find these videos @bama.microbes on TikTok and Instagram. Chris was awarded an Innovation Seed Grant from the Levitetz Leadership Program and garnered additional support from AmScope to fund this project. He has also had plenty of support from department faculty who have provided specimens from their labs or classes and ideas for video content.
