Get involved: Microbiology Society microbiome safety workshop

With the advancement of New Generation Sequencing technologies, there has been an increase in research on the human microbiome (gut, oral, skin, lung), and the implications its composition has on health and disease. For example, the composition of oral and skin microbiomes have been shown to have important roles in protecting human health through their resilience and stability. It has also been proven that the efficacy of some drugs are affected by human gut microbiota.

The Microbiology Society is planning to hold a workshop in January 2024 to discuss the current research landscape around the assessment of the safety of microbiome perturbations by chemicals and probiotics. We are looking for interested parties that span academia, industry and government to take part.
