R. E. Hage: Leadership workshop held at Gent University.

R. E. Hage and D. Gottardi: Presentation in a School in Gent for Students. The school is called Sint-Lievenscollege. We attended a biology class with Ms. Myriam Naessens (Biology teacher) and gave twice our presentation for two different groups. One group consisted of 21 students, the other of 17 students. The students were 17 year old 6th-graders. Our presentation included the following points: (1) Our presentation (Racha and Davide), (2) Bibafoods (goal of the project and the exchange of people), (3) Gastrointestinal tract + SHIME (in vivo vs in vitro), (4) Probiotics (who and what they are, what they can do….).
