THE MICROBIOME IN THE ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN HEALTH

THE MICROBIOME IN THE ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN HEALTH
Each of us lives in association with vast numbers of microbes that influence our long-term health by colonising our bodies and the environments in which we live.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF SfAM TO REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT

This Society for Applied Microbiology one-day meeting explores the different compositions of these human and environmental microbiota and how they influence our ecosystem in many different ways.

2016’s WH Pierce Prize winner Professor Jack Gilbert (Argonne National Laboratory) will be presenting his work with Society President Professor Christine Dodd and Vice President Professor Mark Fielder at the 2017 ASM Microbe. There will also be a chance to hear from other established researchers and early career scientists who work in this important field.
