Episode 57: Of Mice and microbes

Are parasites always harmful? How diverse are the microbial communities living within individual hosts? These are questions that Dr Sarah Knowles – a researcher at the Royal Veterinary College in London – has set out to address. She visited IBAHCM in January as a guest lecturer in the Institute’s weekly seminar series. In this podcast, Naturally Speaking editors Steve Larcombe and Taya Forde catch up with Sarah Knowles to discuss her work.
