A roadmap for greater science diversity at UO (Guest opinion)

Most people confronted with the innards of a gutted fish will recoil in disgust. But as scientists who study the microbial communities, or microbiomes, of animals, we are fascinated by the tiny critters that make their home inside a fish gut. Through our own research on the zebrafish, we know that some of these microbes hold the promise for bettering human health, from stimulating the production of insulin-secreting cells in a pancreas to soothing an overactive immune system.
