We are experiencing major advances in our understanding of the human microbiome and its role in health and disease.
This growing knowledge on the diversity of microbes and their part and impact on immune-driven pathophysiological processes could unravel new mechanistic pathways linking the microbiome with certain diseases.
This knowledge could yield novel insights and inform the development of new therapies.
The evening session will cover the role of the microbiome in autoimmunity and non-communicable diseases, discuss the use and role of metabolite profiling and present disease-specific links with the microbiome along with exciting new research initiatives on the subject.
You will learn:
- The role of the microbiome in health and in disease, with a focus on autoimmunity and non-communicable diseases.
- What metabolite profiling is and what it may be used for.
- Links between the microbiome and rheumatoid arthritis.
