The Department of Microbiology and Immunology joined other Departments at the University of Otago Expo “Otago Feeds the Mind” that was held July 9th and 10th in the St David St Lecture theatre complex.
The Microbiology and Immunology stand was organised by Judith Bateup with Zabeen Lateef. Our stand looked at microbes as food production factories as microorganisms are involved in the production of foods ranging from beer and bread to sauerkraut and soy sauce. Our stand also looked at probiotics and whether probiotics provide health benefits.
The University of Otago Expo was part of the International Science Festival that ran from July 6 - 11, 2010.
