Harnessing our inner ecology to track and treat disease

ISB’s virtual course and symposium focusing on the microbiome and its future role in precision medicine will take place on October 15 and 16. The event’s website went live earlier this week.

The virtual course will be taught by Sean Gibbons, Christian Diener, Tomasz Wilmanski, Noa Rappaport, Alex Carr, Priyanka Baloni and Nathan Price. Symposium speakers are Jason Papin (University of Virginia), Ines Thiele (National University of Ireland, Galway), Thomas Gurry (University of Geneva), Julie McDonald (Imperial College London), Gautam Dantas (Washington University School of Medicine) and Johanna Lampe (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center).

Both events are free, and are intended for graduate students, postdocs, principal investigators, industry scientists, educators and clinicians. There are already more than 100 people who have registered. Please share news of this event with your networks.

    Gibbons Lab Awarded NIH R01 to Explore Precision Nutrition

    The ecological structure of the human gut microbiome helps determine nutritional and phenotypic responses to diet. However, a clear mapping does not yet exist between diet, gut microbial ecology, gut microbial community metabolism, and human metabolic phenotypes. This proposal, entitled “CyberGut: towards personalized human-microbiome metabolic modeling for precision health and nutrition“, provides five years of funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the design and testing of an…
