Science on Tap presents Life After Death: The microbiome of decomposition
December 9, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Science on Tap is a free science monthly talk from professors, grad students, and scientists in the Fort Collins community and beyond. All are invited!
Our December speaker for Science on Tap is soon-to-be Dr. Aeriel Belk! A brief summary:
Microbes are all around us, including on our skin and in our bodies. During life, they help us with things like disease prevention and digestion, and after we die, the microbes live on! Aeriel researches how to use these microbes as a forensics tool. She will discuss the different communities of bacteria that flourish during decomposition and how we can use them to better predict the day of death
This event will be held in our Upstairs Event Hall, which is not handicapped accessible. If you would like to attend this event and require accessibility, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
