Podcast: Microbiome Research – Opportunity or Over-hype?

Posted on August 30, 2017   by Microbiology Society

This month, we’re bringing you a real highlight from our Annual Conference in Edinburgh: a live discussion about the state of microbiome research.

A panel of experts gave their views on whether microbiome research is an opportunity, or whether it’s been over-hyped.

It was a really lively event with a great audience, and it was chaired by our very own Dr Benjamin Thompson.
