Microbes and Climate Change
11 & 12 May
Prof Gilbert Greub, UNIL/CHUV
Climate change is one of the most pressing societal concerns of our time.
Climate change impacts multiple areas: from policy making to public health.
As the main engines of biogeochemical cycling, microorganisms are at the center of processes affecting our climate.
In this 2-day activity, research experts will discuss multiple aspects liking climate change and microbiology. This includes:
- The shift and modification of the distribution range of vectors involved in the transmission of microbial diseases,
- The health of in-land aquatic systems and the challenges we will face for clean water supplies,
- The future of permafrost and the environmental/health consequences of soil thawing.
It is likely that a valid COVID certificate will be required to attend this activity. TBC depending on the evolution of the pandemic.
