The Human Microbiome conference: 16-19 Sept 2018, Germany

The Human Microbiome Conference will be held on 16-19 September 2018 at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany.

Human microbiota – the collection of microbes living in and on our body – have a significant impact on human health and well-being. They have been associated with numerous diseases, yet we have barely understood their role in the context of life-style and genetics. This conference will provide plentiful opportunities for researchers to learn about and to connect to important developments in studying the human microbiota.

  • Microbes and us: A complex ecosystem
  • Bioinformatics for the microbiome
  • Microbiome in nutrition and metabolism
  • Microbiome in gut-brain axis
  • Synthetic biology
  • Novel techniques for microbial ecology
  • Antimicrobials from the microbiome

Important dates

  • Registration deadline: 5 August 2018
  • Abstract deadline: 24 June 2018
