Food, Guts, and Bugs: Keys to a Cultured Life

Please join TSS for the kick-off of the 2021 Horizons Speaker Series. Dr. Erin McKenney from North Carolina State University will share with us how microbial communities form over time and how they adapt to their environments. In this presentation, she will discuss how ecology and nutrition impact the gut microbiomes of over 22 species, with implications for promoting health and understanding disease. Her interest in microbial cultures, such as those in fermented foods, have provided an opportunity to investigate the relationship to human cultures. Microbial cultures also provide accessible systems for studying microbiology without formal laboratory equipment. By combining citizen science and global collaborations, Erin brings research into the classroom to empower students of all ages.
