Project 5- Seki
"The Enhancement of Toxin-Induced Liver Fibrosis in Fatty Liver Disease"
Invited Speaker: Dr. Jack Gilbert
Location: ZOOM Meeting (details sent via email distribution)
Seminar Title: “The Microbiome: Linking Soil and Human Health”
Dr. Gilbert is a world-class microbiome investigator that is relatively new to UCSD and is involved in some incredible projects with bioremediation of agriculture systems using microbes. Currently, Dr. Gilbert is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at University of California, San Diego. He is co-author of “Dirt, Is Good: The Advantage of Germs for Your Child's Developing Immune System”. He is the primary investigator for various research ventures, including the Earth Microbiome Project, the Home Microbiome Project, the Gulf Microbial Modeling Project, the Hospital Microbiome Project, and the Chicago River Microbiome Project. More details of his research can be found at his laboratory website: http://www.gilbertlaboratory.com/research
The UCSD Superfund Research Center holds a monthly Seminar Series in which participating laboratories, including Principal Investigators, postdoctoral trainees, and students report on their research plans and progress. The scientific presentations are followed by free discussions. These seminars play an essential role in disseminating data between the laboratories, as well as providing an opportunity for all members of the program to interact on a regular basis.
The seminars are mandatory for supported students of our Training Core and postdoctoral fellows that are supported by the research projects. All the Principal Investigators of our Center are encouraged to attend and there is always at least one representative from each Project and Core. Many collaborative activities, especially those between biomedical and non-biomedical projects, have resulted from these meetings.
There are no events to display.
