College of Science, Oregon State University
"I Contain Multitudes"
The College of Science invites you to a public lecture in conjunction with the Oregon Microbiome Initiative (OMBI) featuring Ed Yong, a British science journalist and author of the recent bestselling book about microbiomes: I Contain Multitudes.

Every animal, whether wasp or squid or human, is a teeming mass of microbes--an entire world, a thriving ecosystem. These microscopic companions sculpt our organs, protect us from diseases, grant us incredible abilities, and bombard us with their genes. Based on his bestselling book, I Contain Multitudes, science writer Ed Yong will take us takes us on a tour of this neglected but increasingly fashionable world--one of glowing squid, gutless worms, disease-fighting mosquitoes, and faecal transplants.

Join us for a free public lecture on Thursday, May 11 on the campus of Oregon State University in the Memorial Union Horizon Room at 6:00 p.m. and a reception honoring Ed Yong at 5:30 p.m..
