About the Author

Benjamin Tanner, Ph.D. received a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Arizona in 2005, where renowned microbiologist Dr. Charles Gerba served as his advisor. He has published a number of articles in peer-reviewed scholarly journals and presented his research to various audiences in academia, industry, and government. In addition, he has done collaborative research with the United States Environmental Protection Agency, United States Department of Agriculture, and the National Science Foundation Water Quality Center at the University of Arizona.

Dr. Tanner has focused his academic and professional endeavors on preventing environmentally mediated disease transmission. Some of his major achievements include helping to define the impact of water quality on the action of disinfectants, evaluating environmental specimens for microorganisms in support of litigation, assessing risks of infection from aerosols generated during the reuse of municipal waste, and assisting with the identification of noroviruses as the cause of gastrointestinal disease outbreaks on cruise ships. Dr. Tanner currently works as a microbiologist for the Clorox Company, where he develops disinfectants that help prevent disease transmission.

More About the Author

Benjamin Tanner holds a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Arizona, where he studied infectious disease transmission with Dr. Charles Gerba. He is currently President of Antimicrobial Test Laboratories, a contract microbiology laboratory specializing in antimicrobial research and development.

Dr. Tanner has served as an expert witness in a range of lawsuits related to infectious disease, and enjoys the impact that solid reasoning and scientific understanding bring to such cases.

In his words, "I love working with bright and innovative people on infectious diseases and control measures. What exites me the most is sharing the science with others. If I can help people to understand microbes better and protect themselves when necessary, then to me that's success."

Format: Paperback
This book is clear, straight forward, and not intimidating to the non-microbiologist. At the same time, it delivers a real insider's view into critical legal aspects of microbiology- including a great description of False-negative and False-positive test results (Ch.6) and what can cause them, as well as excellent coverage of food and waterborne diseases- which are of increasing importance as more and more disease outbreaks occur associated with contaminated produce or produce wash water. This is not just another microbiology text- it is truly tailored to include legal insights that anyone would find fascinating and useful.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a great review of microbiology for those who are interested not only from a legal point of view, but for those who only have a mass media (newspaper, tv, etc) knowledge of microbiology. Dr. Tanner brings the most important points, often highlighted in news reports, and expands them to a point so as not to fear, mislead, or overwhelm, but to enlighten. Chapters 13,12, 7, and 8 are points of interest, and deal with real world applied microbiology. The book is laid out in a fashion which is not intimidating and provides chapter summaries which should be included in all scientific journals as well as books. I have recommended this book to my non-major undergraduate students interested in microbiology from an outside point of view.
