The Human Microbiome: Beyond the Gut

Original Broadcast Date: Tuesday May 5, 2015
Duration: 1.5 hours

The human body hosts myriad distinct bacterial colonies that play important functions in both health and disease. These dynamic microbial colonies fluctuate over time and even form niche colonies in close proximity to one another. This webinar will highlight new research on the human microbiome and how this knowledge is being used to understand health and disease. The panelists will discuss advances in research on lung and skin microbiome. Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are unique to their research.
