Biologist Studies White Nose Syndrome

White nose syndrome is a fungal infection that is killing millions of hibernating bats across the United State. Faculty members and graduate students from the Missouri State University biology department are studying the infection in hopes of slowing or stopping its spread.

Dr. Tom Tomasi is the associate dean of the Graduate College and a professor of biology. He has been studying factors related to white nose syndrome for years.
