13 October, 2021 - 15 October, 2021

General Information

Owing to the ongoing situation with covid-19, this event will be organised as a virtual conference.

Wellcome Connecting Science’s 10th Microbiome meeting will once again bring together leading scientists and clinicians from the fields of microbiology, gastroenterology, neuroscience and public health to discuss the latest developments in this fast-moving area.

This meeting will update current knowledge of how various microbiomes (skin, oral, gut, lung, non-bacterial etc.) communicate with the host and the factors that influence these interactions. This year’s meeting will focus on immune–microbiome interactions and the impact of drugs on the microbiome. We will also discuss interactions between the gut and nervous system and explore the biological understanding emerging from large-scale microbiome studies. Finally, the influence of microbiome on pathogens and infectious disease will be featured

Topics will include:

  • Microbiome–immune interactions
  • Bugs and Drugs
  • Microbiome, gut and nervous system interactions
  • Large-scale microbiome studies
  • Microbiome, pathogens and infection
