Gut Feelings at Melbourne Museum

AGIRF Gastroenterologist Dr. Chamara Basnayake and Clinical Scientist Dr. Amy Wilson-O'Brien have contributed an exhibit to Melbourne Museum as part of the wonderful Gut Feelings Exhibition! Dr Basnayake and Dr. Wilson-O'Brien spoke to the museum about their experiences working with FMT (Faecal Microbiota Translantation) in a lighthearted and educational way. The Gut Feeling exhibition features stunning displays that explore new revelations that our minds, guts and microbes are inextricably linked.  How do gut microbes affect our thought and behaviours?  You can learn the answer to all of these questions and more through immersive, multi-sensory experiences inside the exhibition. Walk amongst your microbes in a stunning gut tunnel, marvel at art and science installations and see the gut in a whole new light, from poo-transplants to probiotic-rich diets.  The exhibition is running at Melbourne Museum until February 2020.  For a taste of the exhibition itself - look below to see Chamara and Amy in action!
