RECENT CHAPTER EVENT
We had an exciting and informative AMWA Northern California Chapter event on Saturday, February 7. Mohan Iyer, CBO of Second Genome, Inc., a local biotech focused on impacts of the gut microbiome on human health, presented a talk entitled Microbiome Science: At the Tipping Point.
In a change of pace from recent program events at restaurants, this event was held at Second Genome's large conference room in South San Francisco.
An Indian food buffet was catered by celebrity chef Ranjan Dey. For details, see the EVENTS page.
