Every human being carries along over a hundred thousand billion microbes, which are minuscule organisms that you need to live. In five lectures, you will be introduced to various microbiota, groups of microbes found in and on your body. You will learn what they are made up of and how they work when you are healthy or indeed when you are sick. This will all be illustrated by scientific research currently being conducted at knowledge institutions and universities. Micropia professor Remco Kort will provide insight into what we know about the microbes in our body and how we can use the knowledge about this minuscule life in diagnosis and prognosis and for interventions. The lectures given by various guest lecturers will teach you how the microbiome is acquired, while other subjects such as probiotics, the dark side of science and the human microbiome are discussed.
This lecture series is intended for students and interested parties with some knowledge of microbiology.
