Giulia Enders tells the story how and why she became fascinated by the gut (arguably) the most underrated organ of our bodies.
Giulia Enders, author of Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body's Most Underrated Organ, is a PhD student of Goethe University, Frankfurt.
In 2012 she won First Prize at Science Slam Freiburg, Berlin and Karlsruhe with her talk titled Charming Bowels and got a book deal that became a bestseller in Germany overnight. The rights for her book, in which she explains how the human gastrointestinal tract is functioning, was sold in 18 countries.
She currently is working on her thesis and is on her way to practice as a gastroenterologist in the future.
