My genes don’t fit! Living in a salt saturated society. Matthew Bailey

Our biology is currently out of sync with our environment. By making connections between past and present, Matthew sets out how we came to be in such a predicament, and the consequences for our health.

This talk was delivered at Edinburgh’s iconic Central Hall on Thursday, February 18th 2016 and was a part of series of talks given at the TEDxUniversityofEdinburgh 2016 Conference.

Dr Matthew Bailey is the Director of the Centre for Cardiovascular Science at the University of Edinburgh. He completed his PhD in London, post-doctoral training in Saclay (France) and has worked at Yale. Along the way, Matthew has been picking apart the workings of the kidney, blood pressure, and most recently the role of salt in human physiology.
