The interaction between diet and the microbiome:
an academic and industry perspective
Research on the microbiome is considered an emerging science, but scientists already have made tremendous progress in understanding the microbial makeup of the microbiome and in associating microbiome diversity with human disease. Moreover, the understanding of how the microbiome impacts human health and disease is growing. It is likely that much of this impact works through diet. Growing evidence suggests that gut microbes influence what the human host is able to extract from its diet, both nutritionally and energetically. This webinar will focus on the influence of the microbiome on diet and dietary components. What is the state of the art in research and how can this be applied in industry?
With the current health situation of rising Covid-19 infections in mind, we have scheduled this meeting as an online meeting.

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.
