Just How Human Are We? The relationship between our bodies, our gut bacteria, health and disease
November 14, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This is the second in the series of Great Talks organised by the University of Greenwich (Medway Campus), Faculty of Engineering and Science.
This 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.
