What is MEGAMicrobe?

VI4’s Mission is to train the next generation of scientists and physicians and make fundamental discoveries in the areas of infection biology, immunology, and inflammation with the goal of increasing knowledge and improving human health.

MEGAMicrobe is a free, community-focused, half-day event for 6-14 year-olds, designed to generate interest in Science among Nashville’s youth. Volunteers are dedicated to showing that science is fun, accessible and important.

Nashville parents, teachers, and students are invited to come learn about microbes and the important role they play in human health in a fun, interactive setting, with real scientists from Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
