Description

Dr. Lawrence David, Assistant Professor, Duke Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Duke University Medical Center, provided a talk on "Perturbing the Human Microbiome."

Over the past decade, molecular surveys have revealed a breathtaking diversity of bacteria in and on the human body. Research in humans and mice show the impact of these bacteria in how our immune systems are activated, how we resist pathogens, and how we digest food. This talk explores how self-tracking can be used to identify health and lifestyle factors, such as diet shifts and infections, that are capable of influencing human-associated microbial communities.
