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.
To register for the conference, please create an account in the My Space (link on the left sidebar), and enter your contact details via the Register link.
We want to encourage the sharing of information between researchers within the microbiome field. If you want to get involved, join this network to share upcoming events and opportunities within the microbiome field.
We are proud to have five microbiome experts presenting at this event:
Dr Marc-Emmanuel Dumas - Imperial College An expert in microbiome-metabolomics analyses, who is now working to develop the concept of microbiome-wide metabolome-wide association studies.
Professor William Wade - Queen Mary University Expert on the oral microbiome and its implications in health and disease.
Professor Kevin Whelan - King’s College London Dietetics Professor researching the role of probiotics and prebiotics on human gut health as well as the effect of dietary manipulation on the gut microbiota.
Dan Staines - EBI Expert on Ensembl Bacteria, a database of over 9000 annotated bacterial and archaea genomes.
Professor Dusko Ehrlich - King’s College London As the Director of the newly announced host-microbiome centre at the Dental Institute, King's College London, Professor Ehrlich is at the forefront of microbiome research.
