Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. Listen to experts talk about the science in your neighborhood and around the world. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!


Amphibians are at the forefront of the global extinction crisis, and emerging fungal diseases have accounted for a surprising number of amphibian declines and extinctions. At this Science on Tap, Jonah Piovia-Scott, PhD, Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at Washington State University Vancouver, will talk about what these fungal pathogens are, how they kill amphibians, and efforts to prevent further amphibian losses to disease.


Science on Tap at the Kiggins is produced in partnership with  Campus Sig-Horz Vancouver
