Our Disappearing Microbes

Santa Cruz, CA 95062
Public Lecture and Book Signing with Dr. Martin Blaser  In Missing Microbes, Dr. Martin Blaser reaches back to the discovery of antibiotics, which ushered in a golden age of medicine, and then traces how our subsequent overuse of these seeming wonder drugs has left its mark on our systems, contributing to the rise of what Blaser calls our modern plagues: obesity, asthma, allergies, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer. Blaser's studies suggest antibiotic use during early childhood poses the greatest risk to long-term health, and, alarmingly, American children receive on average about seventeen courses of antibiotics before they are twenty years old. At the same time, C-sections deprive babies of important contact with their mothers' micro biomes. Taking us into the lab to recount studies, Blaser provides support for his theory and guides us to what we can do to avoid even more catastrophic health problems in the future. Martin J. Blaser, M.D., is the George and Muriel Singer Professor of Medicine, Professor of Microbiology, and Director of the Human Microbiome Program at the NYU School of Medicine.  He served as Chair of the Department of Medicine at NYU from 2000-2012.  A physician and microbiologist, Dr. Blaser is interested in understanding the relationships we have with our persistently colonizing bacteria. His work over the past 30 years focused on human pathogens, includingCampylobacter species and Helicobacter pylori, which also are model systems for understanding interactions of residential bacteria with their human hosts.  Over the last decade, he has been actively studying the relationship of the human microbiome to health and such important diseases as asthma, obesity, diabetes, and allergies.  Over the course of his career, Dr. Blaser has served as the advisor for a large number of students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty, and he has been actively involved in national scientific and professional organizations.  He served as President of the Infectious Diseases Society of America, Chair of the Board of Scientific Counselors of the National Cancer Institute, and Chair of the Advisory Board for Clinical Research of the National Institutes of Health. He currently serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. He was elected to the Institute of Medicine and the American Academy for Arts and Sciences. He holds 24 U.S. patents relating to his research, and has authored over 500 original articles. Most recently, he wrote Missing Microbes, a book targeted to the general audience.  ***       ***       ***       *** This free public lecture and book signing is hosted by the Microbiology and Environmental Toxicology (METX) Department at UCSC.

San Diego band Tribal Seeds is one of large contingent of California-based bands devoted to the continued proliferation of Jamaica's greatest gift to the music world, reggae. Combining live instrumentation with electronic components, Tribal Seeds draw on ska, as well as a more recent strain of UK dance music called dubstep. As is the case with even the earliest Jamaican reggae music, bass is one of the foremost draws of reggae music and its major influence on today's electronic music. The Tribal Seeds have built themselves an intimate, loyal following upon these weighty bass foundations, and tour extensively as a result.

White Arrows began as a recording exercise while lead singer Mickey Schiff was attending NYU in 2009. After moving to Los Angeles, enlisting musicians and forming a proper group, White Arrows began playing venues in Southern California, gathering a solid local fan base fairly quickly with its modern psychedelic sound. The band, consisting of six members is often clad in Hawaiian shirts when performing, which complements the beachy sonic demeanor and summertime vibes of the band’s music.
