Today on ‘Intersections: The RIT Podcast’

Science professor André Hudson mentored three area high school students and their collaboration led to the discovery of a rare bacterium that kills E. coli. The group published its findings in an academic journal. In this episode of Intersections, Hudson talks with Kit Mayberry, RIT vice president for strategic planning and special initiatives, about what he learned about himself as a teacher and a scientist on the project.
