Part of the Evening Biology Lectures series

Professor Robin May, Lister Fellow and Professor in Infectious Diseases, School of Biosciences

17:30 Refreshments
18:00 Lecture starts

We're surrounded by microbes in, on and around us.  Many are helpful or harmless whilst some cause well known infections.  However, what is less appreciated is the way in which these invisible organisms influence aspects of our lives such as diet, allergies and even our behaviour.  In this talk, we'll highlight some recent discoveries about the more unusual ways in which microbes make use of their human homes. 

Open to all who are interested in the study of Biology. Particularly suitable for A-Level students.
The lecture is free of charge. All welcome to attend, but booking is required.
