BioBE postdoc Roxana Hickey presented a live webinar highlighting past and ongoing BioBE research in the LabRoots Microbiology and Immunology Virtual Event held on September 7-8, 2016. Her talk, titled “Exploring the Great Indoors: The Built Environment and Human Health”, was featured alongside 16 other presentations covering a variety of topics in microbiology and biomedical research. Two other speakers, Jack Gilbert (University of Chicago) and Scott Kelley (San Diego State University), also presented built environment microbiome research to the broad audience of researchers and clinicians. All presentations from the event are available for on-demand viewing at LabRoots until the end of the year (free registration required).

What can the microbes on your chair tell us about the indoor microbiome?

What sorts of bacteria did we find in a university classroom? from BioBE Center on Vimeo.

Funny you should ask! A new BioBE study is out today in the journal Microbiome. We sampled the bacteria from surfaces all over a university classroom and found that the bacteria on those surfaces can tell you quite a bit about how we interact with those surfaces. We also made a quick film that discusses our results.
