Just How Human Are We? Lecture by Professor Jeremy Everett

November 14, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The relationship between our bodies, our gut bacteria, health and disease is the subject of this FREE  lecture delivered by Professor Jeremy Everett as part of the University of Greenwich (Faculty of Engineering & Science) at Medway ‘Good Talks’ series.

The lecture will explore the relationship between the human and the bacterial parts of our body: our microbiome, and how they work together, both when we are healthy and when we are ill.  The lecture will also show how insights into dysfunction in our microbiomes are driving new medical therapies.

Jeremy is the Professor of Pharmaceutical Technologies at the University of Greenwich UK.  In addition, he is Visiting Professor in the Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College and at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, where he is also a Scientific Consultant and Acting Director of the Singapore Phenome Centre.

Previously he has held global drug discovery leadership positions with Pfizer and GSK.  He is a consultant on pharmaceutical research and patent litigation.  He conducts research in metabolic profiling or metabonomics, an area he has worked in for over thirty years, including co-naming and defining his science.  His current work is focused on metabolic profiling in the areas of ageing, colorectal cancer, obesity and diabetes in collaborations with Horizon  and University College, London.

The lecture takes place on Wednesday 14th November  at 6 pm in the Wardroom in Pembroke Building at the University of Greenwich (Medway Campus) and will be followed by light refreshments.
