You probably already know that microbes are all around us and can spread easily. Most microbes are harmless, but some can make us sick. In this workshop, you’ll learn how the body’s immune system works around the clock to protect us from infection. You’ll meet researchers from APC Microbiome Ireland and find out what it’s really like to be a scientist. This workshop may take in your school (distance dependent) or online though Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
Where: In person or online
When: Monday 14th November and Tuesday 15th November, 10.00AM
APC Microbiome Ireland brings together some of Ireland’s top skincare professionals for an exciting evening event exploring the ground-breaking world of the skin microbiome.
Join us on Science Week to learn about the science behind skincare, how your microbiome influences your skin health and what to look out for in skincare products to target your microbes.
RTE broadcaster and science communicator Kathriona Devereux will lead the discussion featuring voices from skin and microbiome research, dermatology, the beauty industry, and product regulation and development.
During this hands-on workshop, French-speaking scientists will meet young children in the community for a science workshop in the French language. This workshop is a great opportunity for children to practice their language skills and develop their interest in science. The workshop is suitable for children aged 6 to 12 years who speak some French at home.
Where: Room G.04 Western Gateway Building , University College Cork, Western Rd, Mardyke, Cork.
The goal of this focus meeting is to bring together researchers with an interest in microbial evolution and to establish a new network of microbial evolution research in Ireland (MENI). We hope that this will be the first of many annual meetings and confirmed speakers include Prof Ken Wolfe (UCD) and Prof Conor O'Bryne (UCG).
We are inviting submissions from PhDs, postdocs and PIs that cover all aspects of fundamental and applied microbial evolution research from environmental to clinical e.g. molecular mechanisms of evolution, experimental evolution, directed laboratory evolution, phylogenetics, pathogen evolution, antimicrobial resistance evolution etc.
Registration is free and we will provide lunch and a wine reception, please see link for further detail and to register
