PreMiEr Social and Ethical Implications of Microbiome Engineering Journal Club

Wed., Feb. 15 | 3:00 – 4:00 PM ET

Topic: Ethics and responsibility in environmental exposure research

Facilitator: Prof. Joe Brown, UNC-Chapel Hill, SEI core & co-lead testbeds for PreMiEr

Zoom link: See the PreMiEr weekly newsletter or contact Sharon Stauffer at

Article: Brody, J.G., Dunagan, S.C., Morello-Frosch, R. et al. Reporting individual results for biomonitoring and environmental exposures: lessons learned from environmental communication case studiesEnviron Health 13, 40 (2014). Download PDF

The purpose of the PreMiEr SEI Journal Club is to build a community that is exposed to and thinking about the societal implications of microbiome engineering, so that we can begin to think about ways to integrate these aspects into the technology development. Another purpose—to get to know each other better as colleagues in PreMiEr!

All PreMiEr affiliated faculty, students and staff are welcome to attend. We will start with introductions and an informal 5-10 minute presentation of the article. We will then have an open discussion about how the societal and ethical aspects in the article may relate to PreMiEr’s natural science or engineering research, work, or scholarship.

Minimal to no preparation needed.

If you’d like a Google calendar invitation, please contact Sharon Stauffer, GES and PreMiEr SEI project manager at However, if you prefer to mark your own calendar, or show up spur of the moment, no RSVP is needed.
