The Brain Microbiome with Dr Marco Ruggiero

The brain is not sterile. Open your mind to a new and exciting view of human brain evolution and our symbiotic relationship with microbes in this 4 week research-based educational course led by Dr Marco Ruggiero.

Like the rest of our body, the brain is home to bacteria, viruses and fungus, such as yeast and larger parasites such as amoebas. This changes the clinical landscape of many conditions, including autism, neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and chronic inflammatory response syndromes (CIRS). It also forces us to consider the 'mind', 'self', and 'agency' blurring the lines between science and philosophy.

Join Dr Ruggiero as he unravels the latest research in these remits, elucidating our relationship with microbes in the brain, and the aetiology and pathogenesis of these increasingly common conditions, opening the way for novel treatments.
