Presentation Slide Release: Skin Microbiota, Dysbiosis and Inflammation

Everywhere you look, evidence points to the role of microbiomes in health. Since initial research on gut microbiota, focus has expanded to other sites of the human body. In particular, the skin microbiome has received much attention.

Here, we provide 3 sets of presentation slides centred around skin flora.

11 Lessons From Microbiome Research that Changed the way we Approach Microbes

Written by Marcelline Goyen

Amsterdam was full of “international microbes” during the 4th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: Europe. More than 300 people interested in human microbiomes met at the Beurs van Berlage to listen to current research and meet colleagues and partners.

As an editor for Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Huidtherapie (NTVH), a Dutch magazine for Skin Therapy, and a skin therapist interested in the microbiome, I was lucky to be able to attend this meeting and I’d like to share with you some of the insights I gained.

The Human Microbiome in Focus: Probiotics, Modulation and Translation – Part 2

The 4th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: Europe explored microbiota both inside and outside the gut and examined the role of the human microbiome in various diseases with a focus on modulation and biotherapeutic translation.

Last week, we published Duc H. Le’s summary of some of the presentations on day one. Here’s the second day summed up.

Probiotics on the Skin: An Undiscovered World

For many years, the gut microbiome has been driving the development of novel probiotic treatments. However, as the first scientifically validated products start to hit the market and more data from clinical trials become available (Olle, 2013), interest in other types of microbiomes is increasing.

Cross-Cultural Research into Microbiome Therapeutics for Cancer

While microbiome therapeutics to support healthy gut function have garnered the lion’s share of attention, exciting approaches to oncology and anti-inflammatory therapeutics presage a new golden age for drug development, akin to the early commercialisation of chemically synthesised antibiotics from soil biofilms in the mid-20th century.
