What’s in Your Gut?

October 11, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

As you’re probably well aware, there’s a lot going on in your gut, but did you realize our intestines have a place in history? Jessica Metcalf, assistant professor of animal sciences at Colorado State University, uses microbes preserved in coprolites (ancient fecal material) to characterize the gut microbiome of ancient humans, allowing her to map how our intestines have changed over time, particularly in the recent past due to western practices, such as widespread use of antibiotics, high-fat diets, and intense hygiene practices. Get up close and personal with these microscopic organisms, and find out the implications Metcalf’s research has for human health.

[$12 – $15]
