Gut health and brain disease – public lecture

Professor John Furness and Dr Martin Stebbing present a fascinating lecture about our ‘second brain’ – the gut nervous system.

How do our brain and gut talk to each other, what role do bacteria play, and exactly how different is a koala’s gut to our own?

Aiming to find new cures for Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease, the pair take us on a tour of the body’s second most intriguing organ.
