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.
We’ve been hearing a lot about the immune system lately, but do you really know what it is? Have you been wondering about your own immune system and how to take care of it? Join ISB President Dr. Jim Heath and world-class immunologists on November 10 to learn how your immune system works and what steps you can take to improve it.
