Workshop on Environment & Health: What's the Microbiome Have To Do With It?

Posted on Jan 2, 2016 4:52:42 AM

Workshop - Washington, DC, United States
The microbiome—the collection of bacteria, viruses and fungi living on and inside of our bodies—impacts health in many ways and can even influence our responses to environmental chemicals.
Explore the intersection of the environment, the microbiome, and human health at this workshop from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Standing Committee on Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions.
Participants at the workshop will discuss the latest emerging research on microbiome-environment interactions, including:
  • how the microbiome could influence responses to environmental exposures;
  • how environmental exposures early in life could change microbiome function and affect later-life health outcomes;
  • a potential framework to advance research over the next decade.
Held in Washington, DC and webcast, this free, 2-day workshop will bring together leading experts in environmental health, microbiology, epidemiology, and research policy. Please visit the workshop website to register and for more information, including the agenda.
