Breakdown of Microbiome Conferences
World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2016Organized by the International Society of Microbiota, the World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2016 is a three-day meeting at the Institute Pasteur in Paris covering a variety of topics. Sessions include topics such as:
- Recent advances and perspectives
- Microbiota and skin
- Microbiota interpretation and big data
- Challenges to controlling the diversity and quality of microbiota
Gut Microbiome 2016Gut Microbiome 2016, in Manipal, India, is a two-day microbiome conference with a more clinical focus. Disease areas covered include infectious disease, IBD and food-borne illness.
Advancing Microbiome Research Symposium: Microbiome and DiseaseCan't make it to Paris or Manipal? On November 3, the Advancing Microbiome Research Symposium: Microbiome & Disease event in Potomac, MD, offers a packed, full-day agenda with 15 speakers. Keynote speaker Odile Engel of the US Food and Drug Administration will present a talk entitled "Microbiome, Disease and Therapeutics ".
- Robert Beiko of Dalhousie University on "Common Assumptions and Pitfalls of Microbiome Analysis"
- Aaron Ericsson of the University of Missouri on "Complex Microbiota Targeted Rederivation - A New Paradigm in Gnotobiology"
International Human Microbiome CongressThe sixth session of the International Human Microbiome Congress the first to be held in the United States. The organizers expect 600-700 scientists and researchers to attend.
The three-day schedule includes a plenary session on the frontiers of metagenomics medicine and sessions focusing on environmental crosstalk with the microbiome - taking microbiome science beyond the gut and host-microbiome interactions.
Advancing Microbiome Research Symposium: Microbiome & DiseaseOn Nov 17, the Advancing Microbiome Research Symposium: Microbiome & Disease in Chicago, IL, features a keynote presentation, "Sepsis and Microbiome" presented by Thomas Griffith of the University of Minnesota.
- "Effects of Food Matrix and Western Diet on Colorectal Cancer and Metabolism in C57BL/6 Mice" by Korry Hintze of Utah State University
- "Dialogue Between Host Metabolism and Gut Microbiota" by David Alvarado of Washington University
- "Exercise as a Lens to View the Microbiome and Intestinal Health" by Sara Campbell of Rutgers University
Microbial Communities: Modelling Meets ExperimentsIn December, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) has organized a course entitled "Microbial Communities: Modelling Meets Experiments".
"The course will introduce state-of-the art modeling and experimental tools for discovering and analyzing species interactions in microbial communities, with a particular focus on metabolic dependencies."
There's such a variety of microbiome conferences to choose from, microbiome researchers are spoiled for choice this fall.
