Symposium: Microbiome in Human Disease

Date

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 9:00am to 12:30pm

Organized By

Harvard Catalyst Reactor

Event Details

Human microbiota, the collection of microorganisms living inside and on the surface of our bodies, have been associated with various aspects of numerous diseases. These associations include susceptibility, causation, complications, and even prevention. While the impact of translational microbiological research, most dramatically in the cure and prophylaxis of infectious diseases, has been extraordinary, the relationship of the microbiome to other disease states remains under investigated, as does the import of microbial ecology in normal and pathological states.

The Microbiome in Human Disease Symposium, sponsored by the Harvard Catalyst Reactor Program, will provide researchers with the opportunity to learn about current human microbiome research and promote a greater understanding of the role(s) microbiomes play in the manifestation and treatment of human disease in its broadest sense. Information about many of the microbiome-related cores and services from across the university and hospitals will be highlighted.
