MSU molecular biologist Dr. Shannon Manning played a crucial role in helping to solve the

mystery behind one of the most deadly E. coli outbreaks ever, which killed more than 50 people and sickened nearly 4,000 in Germany in 2011.

Dr. Manning is also a featured lecturer in MSU’s Classes Without Quizzes hosted by the College of Natural Science. She joins us to discuss the rise in drug-resistant bacteria.
