PoST Shots 2018: You are what you eat

Thanik Lertcharnrit (Department of Archeology, Silpakorn University)

It is taken for granted that ancient people relied primarily on local food sources. Also, it is hypothesized that in hierarchical societies, people of different social status might have access to differentiated diets; higher ranking persons would have been able to afford more exotic, non-local, prestige foods than common or lower-class populations. In this talk, I will illuminate how analysing stable isotopes helps prove those assumptions.

PoST 2017: Bac Chat

Matt Robinson (Molecular Microbiologist, LOMWRU)

To find the best (and worst) things in life we use our senses to see, feel, smell, taste and hear, and we'll tell our friends about it. But how do bacterial pathogens find the best places? How do they tell their mates? We will delve deep into the bacteria to find out how they sense and respond to their environments, and see how we can use this to investigate and treat human infections.
