Wednesday, March 8, 2017 - Starting Small
*Free event & refreshments*
Speaker: Martin J. Blaser, MD - New York University Langone Medical Center
The human body is filled with microbes—tiny forms of life that live in and on us. Researchers are realizing that microbes are not just passengers in our body, or enemies that we must eliminate, but partners in how we live every day. We also understand that the early months and years of life are a critical time for how we develop. During that time, we develop our immunity, the ways in which we capture and store energy, and shape how our brains see the world. It is also becoming clear that microbes help us develop in a healthy manner, and that modern inventions like antibiotics, surgical procedures, soaps, and cleansing solutions could be interfering with these processes.

Time: 4:30-6pm - Doors open at 4pm
Location: The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH)
