Montgomery College Hosts Spectrum Lecture on Biohydrogen Fuel Production
Scientist Dr. Frank Robb to Talk at Germantown Campus, Feb. 25

Dr. Frank Robb, a scientist and professor with the Center of Marine Biotechnology at the University of Maryland, will speak at Montgomery College-Germantown on Wednesday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the College’s 2009 Spectrum Lecture Series. The talk will take place in Globe Hall, which is located in the High Technology and Science Center, 20200 Observation Drive in Germantown, Md. This event is free and open to the public.

Like all Spectrum Lectures, Dr. Robb’s presentation is designed for a non-scientific audience, enabling scientists, students and the community to learn about ground-breaking advancements in science. The presentation, “Extremophiles: A New Approach to Biohydrogen Fuel Production,” will address biohydrogen production in extreme environments and microbial survival and growth under these extreme conditions.

Dr. Robb received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Cape Town, South Africa and his Ph.D. in biology from the University of California, Riverside.  He has worked as a professor and scientist at a variety of institutions and is the author of numerous articles and patents.
