Gilbert & Gibbons Town Hall

The promise of the human microbiome

A Town Hall Seattle with Drs. Jack Gilbert and Sean Gibbons

November 4, 2021 from 6 – 7 p.m. PT

Prebiotics and probiotics. Fecal microbiota transplants. Optimizing a diet personalized to you. These microbiome-themed topics are all around us in the media, but microbiome research remains a fairly nascent field of study and wasn’t on many people’s radars even 10 years ago.

UCSD Professor Dr. Jack Gilbert and Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) Assistant Professor Dr. Sean Gibbons come together to tackle this exciting area of research. What have we learned over the past few years? What has gone well, and what could we do better? The two will discuss some exciting developments on the horizon and share when they think people might see microbiome-based technologies in their daily lives.
