Keystone Symposia: Microbiome, Host Resistance and Disease
04 Mar 2018 - 08 Mar 2018 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
The concept that the microbiome shapes health and susceptibility to disease has taken the biomedical sciences by storm. The microbiota is emerging as a fundamental force influencing diverse aspects of physiology reflected in the sessions of this conference. Microbiome studies are at a critical juncture and facing a challenging transition from descriptive studies of association towards mechanistic studies tackling causality. Essential for this transition is a diversity of thinking (chemical and systems biology, metabolism, microbiology, physiology and immunology) and approaches (assays and models). As the basic tools for characterizing microbiomes are now widely accessible, the conference seeks to broaden the base of what defines membership in microbiome studies by inviting investigators to share their vision, approach and results to enhance understanding and mechanistic approaches. In summary, the conference aims to: 1) Introduce a breadth of challenges and biological systems for microbiome studies; 2) Showcase young and senior investigators relevant to advancing next-gen microbiome studies; and 3) Foster collaborative, multidisciplinary microbiome research that advances basic and translational science. This symposium is paired with "Manipulation of the Gut Microbiota for Metabolic Health."
