Prof. Dr. Angela E. Douglas (Cornell University, Ithaca) – Harnessing animal microbiomes: from Davos to Kiel
We are honoured to have Prof. Angela E. Douglas as our CRC 1182 guest.
Angela is the Daljit S. and Elaine Sarkaria Professor of Insect Physiology and Toxicology, at Cornell University, Ithaca. Her current research interest is focused on Drosophila-gut microbe interactions and metabolic coevolution in cooperative symbioses.
During her stay she is going to host different events.
On Thursday, January 26th at 11 am Angela will hold the event “Harnessing Animal Microbiomes: from Davos to Kiel”. At the World Economic Forum in Davos she did this event with economists and politicians and would love to do it now with students and postdocs. This session will provide a single PechaKucha on the application of microbiome science, focusing particularly on agricultural and biomedical science.
Target group: PhD students & Postdocs of the CRC 1182
Harnessing animal microbiomes: from Davos to Kiel
This session is modeled on the IdeasLab scheme run by the World Economic Forum at Davos. This scheme is designed to foster discussion of cutting edge science and its implications. Following a brief “PechaKucha” introduction to the science by the discussion leader, the participants will discuss the key issues. This format is increasingly being used in industry and public engagement events, and it requires different skills from traditional class lectures or research seminars. This session will provide a single PechaKucha on the application of microbiome science, focusing particularly on agricultural and biomedical science.
