3rd Microbiome Forum, San Diego, 10-11 September 2015
The meeting will explore the interface between our evolving cultures, technologies and our microbiome through a series of interactive presentations with leading academics and industry experts
The field of metagenomics has allowed researchers to look into the diversity of the body’s microbiota with findings that the microbiome is a home for diversity, natural immunity, metabolism, behavioral traits, and plays an instrumental role in health and disease. With large-scale collaborative projects underway and sequencing data placed in the public domain, there is a rich source of information for researchers and companies looking for opportunities in this exciting field. With increasing signs that our microbiome may be the key not only for curative but preventative medicine, efforts are focusing on increasing both investment opportunities, clinical trials and innovative research in this area. With an increasing focus on healthy living and a therapeutics market that is expected to grow to $1.2 trillion by 2016, microbial research can be developed in order to provide preventative treatments, cures, therapies and supplements for a worldwide audience in demand.
