Biologist Insight Gut Microbiota

Biologist Insight Gut Microbiota

One area of fascinating and cutting edge Biology today is understanding the role of the billions of bacteria that live in and on each and every one of us.   I am convinced that medicine and the treatment of illnesses such as IBS and Crohns will be transformed in the next decade as Biology begins to understand the role microbes play in our digestive system. 

This week Upper Sixth Form Biologists took part in the Biology Readiness for University Course were treated to a fascinating lecture by guest speaker Heloise Vinette titled ‘The Role of Gut Microbiota in Nutrition and Health. 

Heloise is a graduate of Biology from The University of York, and had studied Biology in France and Spain, and is currently embarking on a Masters in Immunology at Imperial College London.
