Microbiome Futures

A Global Translational Roadmap


23rd May 2018


New York, USA
New York Academy of Medicine

Microbiome Futures is a landmark forum that will document the future of microbiome research and commercialisation.

The live event, on May 23, will be the culmination of a thorough research process, during which the working group will be gathering input from a global pool of stakeholders in the microbiome space. It will feature a roundtable discussion, moderated by Susan Jones, Senior Editor at Nature Biotechnology and Gaspar Taroncher-Oldenburg, consultant-in-residence for Global Engage. 

Combining the summary and analysis of the roundtable discussion, the working group’s feedback, and the KOLs’ input, it will be published as the Roadmap for Microbiome Translation white paper in Nature Biotechnology.
