Did you know that there are trillions of microbes living in our guts? This community forms our microbiome. The microbes are important mediators of our immune system and our mental health. They do this by transforming food molecules into metabolites. Our bodies evolved to use these microbial waste products. We will learn how this happens from Simon Spichak, MSc submitted at University College Cork, Ireland, FameLab Ireland 2020 winner and a science communicator passionate about neuroscience, microbiome and mental health. He is the founder of Resolvve Inc, focused on improving mental health in high school and university students.

In English, interpretation to Bulgarian provided.

The event will be broadcast live online only in front of the audience at Sofia Tech Park.

In partnership with The Embassy of Ireland Sofia.

Due to the epidemic situation, changes in the programme may occur – both in the dates and times of the events and in the mode of delivery (digital or live). Please follow the festival page for the latest information.
