News about our microbiome and how it affects our health is everywhere. At New Scientist Live next month, biologist Sim Singhrao will delve into this topic, focusing on how our lifestyles can lead to changes in the communities of microbes in our mouths and how these changes might diminish our general wellbeing and potentially lead to diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Based at the University of Central Lancashire, Singhrao’s goal is to discover causative links between oral health and the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Ultimately, she is hoping to find strategies we can use to delay or prevent the disease.
