My bacteria and me

Body 32 Bacteria

16
May

19:00-21:00

The Fulford Arms 121 Fulford Rd,
York YO10 4EX


During this event the speakers will explore the interactions between our bodies and their resident microbes. Do all the microbes help us? Or do some harm us? Some might even make us smell… Whereas others could help us release our inner poet! Join us for a lively evening of science, beer and fun!

The science of body odour: what’s that smell?

Gavin Thomas (Reader in Biology, University of York)

Body odour is something we do our best to mask but what is it & why do we make it? We will reveal the role bacteria on your body play in BO production and pose the question: are these ancient pheromones to attract mates?

Messenger: Healing wounds with molecular poetry

Christy Ducker (Poet and teacher of creative writing) , Dimitris Lagos (Senior Lecturer in Immunology, University of York) , Marjan van der Woude (Reader in Microbiology, University of York)

Biomedicine and poetry intertwine in this double session. Discover more about the work of York's Centre for Immunology and Infection: how (and why!) do microbes, and your own cells 'talk'? How do they keep silent, interact, and fight? And how did this inspire poems about healing, loss and hope?
