The MVA Microbiome Network
Our ambition with the MVA Microbiome Network is to create opportunities for microbiome researchers from industry, academia, and health care to meet and collaborate.

Joining the network is free of charge but is limited to Medicon Valley Alliance members. However, non-member organizations and companies are welcome to attend one network event to evaluate if joining the network is relevant. If so, becoming a member of Medicon Valley Alliance will automatically allow you to join the microbiome network.
