Bioterrorism seminar to be held Oct. 25

"Bioterrorism: A Focus on Anthrax" will be the subject of a seminar hosted by Coastal Carolina University's College of Natural and Applied Sciences on Thursday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. in Wall Building 317. The free seminar, which will include a question-and-answer session, will provide information relating to the precautions, dangers and treatment of anthrax.

Anthrax is an acute infectious disease caused by the spore-forming bacterium Bacillus anthracis. The serious forms of human anthrax are inhalation anthrax, cutaneous (skin) anthrax, and intestinal anthrax. Symptoms of the disease vary depending on how it was contracted, but usually occur within seven days after exposure.

Michael Ferguson, associate professor of biology at Coastal, will lead the seminar. Ferguson, who joined the Coastal faculty in 1988, earned a bachelor's degree from California State University, Long Beach, a master's degree from California State Polytechnic University, and a Ph.D. from Kansas State University.
