Science by the Pint

Our next SbtP event features…

Dr. Emily Balskus
Morris Kahn Associate Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology
Gut reactions: The amazing chemistry of the human microbiome

Thursday, April 27, 6:30-8:30pm at Aeronaut Brewery (14 Tyler Street, Somerville) (directions)

The majority of life on Earth is microbial. Even within the human gut, there are more microbes than actual human cells. What are they all doing there? Dr. Emily Balskus’s lab integrates the fields of chemistry and microbiology to study microbes and microbial communities. Dr. Balskus will discuss her lab’s efforts to understand the purpose of gut microbes in our bodies and the role they play in maintaining human health.
