COVID-19, VACCINES AND HOW THEY WORK
View a presentation from Professor Tania Wattsexplaining the immunology of COVID-19 as well as information relating to the newly developed vaccines.
Though invisible to the naked eye, the microbiome makes up around 0.3% of our total body mass and is equivalent to the number of cells in our human body. The complex relationship between the human body and the microbiome can be observed in processes as drastic as the manifestation of diseases and as simple as the absorption of nutrients. These small but mighty microorganisms hold sizable power in influencing the way our body functions. With increasing knowledge of the field, we are starting to explore how to manipulate it to improve our health and the outcome of disease.
