The Invisible Extinction: The Race to Save Our Vanishing Microbes

Rutgers’ microbiologists Martin Blaser and Gloria Dominguez-Bello are subjects of this new documentary examining their decades-long research on the link between our bodies’ microbiome – the bacteria, fungi, and viruses that help us digest food and keep us healthy—and diseases like diabetes, asthma, and autism.

The Invisible Extinction follows Blaser, director of the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine at Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, and Dominguez-Bello, the Henry Rutgers Professor of Microbiome and Health at the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, as they travel the world in search of answers.

A Q&A with Drs. Blaser and Dominguez-Bello and filmmakers will follow the screening.
