The School of Biological Sciences and Institute for Global Food Security are delighted to annouce the Inagural Lecture of our colleague Professor Sharon Huws. 

Sharon's key research interests lie in understanding the role that rumen microbes play in ruminant food security. Her research is strategically focused on understanding the functionality of rumen microbes—with the aim of addressing food security and human health—coupled with industrial biotechnology related to the rumen microbiome. Sharon also has a general interest in microbiomes and occasionally focuses attention on poultry, pig and even human lung microbiomes.

Sharon coordinates the global 'Rumen Microbial Genomics' network, is an editor for the journals Microbiome and Frontiers in Microbiology, as well as a ruminant nutrition section editor for the journal Animal.

This lecture will be held virtually and attendees are asked to RSVP Michael Hills (m.hills@qub.ac.uk). Joining instructions will follow via email.
