SEBS Virtual Learning Experience: Microbiomes and the Effect of Urbanization
The microbiome is a critical component of human health and our immune system. Urbanization practices are often antimicrobial and impair the transmission and colonization of microbes inter-generationally, altering the structure of microbial ecosystems and human exposures. This occurs concomitantly with an observable increase in the incidence of immune diseases, to which there seems to be a microbial connection.
Dr. Maria Gloria Dominguez-Bello, Director of the NJ Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health (IFNH) and Henry Rutgers Professor of Microbiome and Health, will discuss.
