Every Friday through April, join the Problems in Complex Disease Biology Colloquium Series.
The final meeting for the colloquium will feature Jack A. Gilbert, PhD, presenting his lecture titled "The Human Microbiome in the Built Environment.”
The concept of microbes (bacteria, primarily) as intertwined, interdependent communities rather than individual taxa is at the very heart of microbiome studies and is their hallmark. It implies the need to think holistically about what microbes do and how they develop, and it requires developing analytical platforms and computational approaches that seek to deconvolute the amazing complexity inherent to the microbial world.
Jack Gilbert, PhD, is one of the most original, impactful microbiome scientists. Dr. Gilbert has been a leader in microbiome studies from its inception with a unique combination of creativity and uncompromising rigorousness. He has a great ability to share his science with people from different fields and his unbound curiosity for the world that surrounds us, which is reflected in the broad scope of his work.
