Science Cafe: The Science of Microbes

Join us for an interactive discussion with microbiologists Julie Segre, from the National Human Genome Research Institute, and Liliana Losada, from the J. Craig Venter Institute, about human-microbe interactions at the Koshland Science Museum on Wednesday, February 27 from 6:30-8:00 PM.

Microbes inhabit just about every part of the human body, vastly outnumbering human cells. Advances in genomic sequencing have revolutionized our ability to identify and understand the microbes that inhabit different parts of the human body, and how they may influence health and disease.
Tickets are $10, or $7 for students, and can be purchased at the door if spaces remain, although advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended. Advance tickets can be purchased by contacting the Koshland Science Museum at (202) 334-1201, or online at

Food, wine, and beer are included at no charge with the admission fee, for participants 21 and older with proper ID. For more information see:
