Bridging the gap between science and medicine with microbiology


Microbiologists are professionals who study different microscopic organisms such as bacterias, fungi, algae and other types of parasites. They study microscopic organisms in order to know their nature and what they would cause to other living things. They also find out solutions to prevent and check these different types of microscopic organisms in order to treat hazardous diseases caused by these microbes.
