B6958: Mastering the Microbiome in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
There are few areas of current research in medicine that are more exciting, yet so poorly understood, than the human microbiome. Within the last 20 years we have begun to scratch the surface of the revolutionary potential that lies in our understanding and manipulation of this microbial world.

B5655: Gastrointestinal Microbiota in Splash Spring 2017 (Apr. 22 - 23, 2017)
An intro into the fascinating ecosystem living inside our gut, and how it impacts our health in ways we are only just beginning to understand! By looking at some of the most influential discoveries (including a little look at faecal transplants!) we will hopefully discover that its all about maintaining a balance.

B5278: Gut Feelings in Splash Fall 2016 (Dec. 03 - 04, 2016)
One of the least understood but critically important parts of the human body is our gastrointestinal (GI) system. Good and bad bacteria are waging war inside us everyday. We are continuously trying to understand and gain control over the gut flora, and one of the most controversial and potentially life-saving new methods involves something called a faecal transplant. Yup... its exactly what it sounds like.
