About Dr. Rose: Dr. Rose is an international authority on water microbiology, water quality, and public health safety, and she co-directs both Michigan State University’s Center for Advancing Microbial Risk Assessment and its Center for Water Sciences. In 2016 she was awarded the Stockholm Water Prize, often touted as the Nobel Prize for water, for her contributions to global public health.
Since 2010, Freshwater and the University of Minnesota College of Biological Sciences have co-hosted a FREE stimulating lecture series on water and the environment. The lectures, known as the Moos Family Speaker Series on Water Resources, honor the late Malcolm Moos, president of the university from 1967 to 1974. The series brings together influential experts on a broad array of topics and pairs a nationally-known speaker with a panel of regional experts. They present the latest research on timely and important issues through an accessible — and often entertaining — presentation.
