The human body contains almost as many bacteria as human cells. It’s that bacteria are everywhere; they are most abundant living beings on the planet! That’s without even talking about viruses that are even more numerous.
But what are these tiny, microscopic beings? Are they all bad? How did they influence the course of human evolution?
Scientific popularizer Jean-Daniel Doucet will host a round table to explore the « invisible » history of humanity with sharp-eyed experts:
- Patrick Fillion, biology/microbiology teacher, columnist at Radio-Canada and CKOF;
- Karl Weiss, Professor of Medicine (UdeM, McGill) and Chief of Division of Infectious Diseases at Jewish General Hospital.
This round table offered in French can be purchased individually or in a series with the round tables of March 29, 2023, and May 11, 2023.
A self-guided visit of the Museum’s two exhibitions will be possible between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. for ticket holders for the event.
