Cottage topic: the human microbiome — our countless microbes

miki sos smallProfessor Daniel Haeusser will present a talk this Sunday, June 10, 2018, from 4-6 p.m. (+ optional potluck) at Riverside-Salem UCC/DC Environmental Cottage, 3449 West River Road, Grand Island, NY 14072.

His presentation is called “You Are Not Just You: The Human Microbiome.” Historically microbes have been associated in the popular mind with disease, but we increasingly are discovering that the majority of microbes are not only harmless, but also transformative and essential to all life, including humans. We typically think of Creation in terms of plants and animals, but microbes are far more wondrously varied and powerful than ever appreciated.

Daniel Haeusser is an Assistant Professor in the Biology Department at Canisius College, where he teaches microbiology and leads student research projects with bacteria and bacteriophage. He is an associate blogger with the American Society for Microbiology’s popular Small Things Considered. He reviews books for various online venues.

Prof. Haeusser is a member of Church of the Nativity UCC where he sings in the choir.

All are welcome.
