Are you an adult experiencing change in your gut health? Community Conversation

1 May 2024, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Murdoch University: 90 South St, Murdoch - Boola Katijin (Room 360.4.031)
Are you an adult experiencing change in your gut health? If yes, we want to hear from you at the upcoming Community Conversation. Getting older is a natural part of life, and it involves various changes in our body processes, including those influenced by gut bacteria. These changes impact our health and contribute to the challenges associated with ageing, which can be a significant economic burden worldwide. Researchers at Murdoch University’s Centre for Computational and Systems Medicine are working to better understand how our bodies interact with gut bacteria as we age. By studying the types of gut bacteria and the processes linked to ageing, they aim to learn important information that could help improve healthcare for older people.
