Graham Atherton chatted about the rise of a new concept in medical research - the study of the bacteria & fungi that live on us and in us and their effect on our health (Biomes/Microbiomes/Mycobiomes). Chris Harris (NAC Manager) went through how best to prepare for flights abroad, giving us plenty of notice for assessing you for travel and all the paperwork that needs to be completed before you can fly with your medication and oxygen cylinders.
