The Human Microbiome: The Organisms that Live In and On Our Bodies

Thursday, 1-3:00
Jan 23 – Feb 27
John Kloetzel

For each one of the 10 trillion cells in the human body, there are ten other cells living in or on us.
What kinds of cells are these? What do they do for us, if anything? Are many of them harmful?
Recent advances in gene sequencing technology offer new insight into these questions, and ongoing
research highlights how important our intestinal bacteria are to our health and well being. This
course will explore these microbes, as well as some other human ‘co-habitors’. No previous science
background required (basic background on cells and microbiology will be included). 

John Kloetzel received his Ph.D. in Biology from The Johns Hopkins University and taught
university-level biology for 37 years. His research in cell biology employed methods ranging from
electron microscopy to molecular techniques such as gene sequencing.
