Next London Microbiome Meeting

on the 28th May at St. Thomas' Hospital at 3:30pm



The Department Twin Research  welcomes you to the first London Microbiome Meeting on 12th June 2014 at the Prideaux Lecture Theatre, St Thomas’ Hospital, commencing at 16:00.

This event aims to create a forum to share research that explores the field of the human microbiome providing a broad overview to both research and methodology. This is an amazing opportunity to develop a microbiome network between various research groups and institutions undertaking this work. The aim is to make this a regular annual meeting. 

Following the meeting there will be an opportunity to network with other scientists and researchers.
