Event description

Description

A Discussion and Book Signing with UC San Diego Professor of Pediatrics and Computer Science Engineering, Rob Knight, PhD.

Join us for a discussion and book signing with author Rob Knight on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 from 5:30 - 7:00 PM in the Seuss Room in Geisel Library. Light refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.

In the new book, Dirt is Good: The Advantage of Germs for Your Child's Developing Immune System, two of the world's top microbiome scientists, Rob Knight, PhD and co-author Jack Gilbert, PhD, take a fresh look at the microbiome - the combined activity of all the tiny organisms inside our bodies and the surrounding environment - commonly known as germs.

At this event, Knight - director of UC San Diego's Center for Microbiome Innovation - will discuss society's recent obsession with the microbiome and its varied effects on human health, which has led to a rise in misinformation, especially for parents who are concerned about their child's heath. A book signing will follow the talk; copies of the book will be available for purchase from the UC San Diego Bookstore.
