Feeding your microbiome
It seems everywhere you turn today, you can’t help hearing about the 'microbiome'. Most people know this has something to do with bugs (microbes) that live inside us and play an important role in our health. Why all the interest now and does diet affect our microbiome?

UQ's Associate Professor Mark Turner will offer a brief overview of the gut microbiome and how the food we eat shapes it, which ultimately affects our health.
