News Articles Featuring Laura Weyrich

Digging into the past: Forgotten soil samples are opportunity for new research

While most time capsules found on campus feature pop-culture relics like vintage copies of the Daily Collegian newspaper, the College of Agricultural Sciences has unearthed a different kind of relic: sealed jars of soil samples collected by Penn State researchers in 1915 and 1933.

Free film and panel discussion reveals 'invisible' crisis of the microbial world

At 6 p.m. Thursday, March 2, Penn State’s Microbiome Center will present "The Invisible Extinction" — a movie that spotlights the trailblazing work and charismatic personalities of renowned scientists who aim to save the vanishing microbes that are essential for our survival.

Indigenous Australians’ unique oral microbiomes may add to chronic disease load

Indigenous Australians have unique microbes in their mouths, which may contribute to a higher burden of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, according to new research led by Penn State and the University of Adelaide.

Ancient oral biome points to overall health

When a baby puts something from the floor in their mouth, we panic, but the mouth already contains thousands of bacteria. Now a team of researchers is looking at archaeological remains for an example of how Japanese oral biomes have changed and what they say about the people who owned those mouths and teeth.

Penn State Microbiome Center elects new executive committee

The Penn State Microbiome Center in the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences recently elected six new members to join its executive committee. The new members, along with 11 others who remained on the committee, started their two-year term in July.
