The Taylor Lab is participating in a couple upcoming public lectures. These are great opportunities for the community to learn about our work in a fun, engaging environment.
First, the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute at the University of Alberta is hosting a public lecture on the gut microbiome in health and disease. Lectures will cover what the gut microbiome is and its role in multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, and addiction. Dr. Taylor will be presenting her work on the gut microbiome and opioid use disorders. Lectures will be followed by an open question period.
This lecture is free and happens October 30th at 6pm in the Allard Lecture Hall in the Katz Building.
The Taylor lab will also be represented at the Telus World of Science Dark Matters Event. This is in adult-only event with a DJ, open bar, and local guest experts with interactive displays. This years theme is “Science of Drugs”, and the Taylor lab will be talking about how drugs interact with the brain and how we study them in the lab.
The event is October 3rd. Get your tickets here!
