MVA Microbiome Network meeting

 Join Medicon Valley Alliance Microbiome Network and our 1st meeting!

The growing interest in microbiome science identified at the Medicon Valley Alliance Microbiome Summit 2017, convinced us that microbiome research will be a science of the future Medicon Valley region. As a result, MVA, together with the Technical University of Denmark, Lund University and Novo Nordisk, are now happy to invite regional microbiome stakeholders from academia, industry and the hospital sector to the first meeting of MVA Microbiome network.

With this microbiome network, we aim to initiate and develop knowledge-sharing and a strong scientific community in the Medicon Valley region, which can bring about cutting-edge R&D to the benefit of patients, doctors and the society. 

The topic of the evening will be “How to design clinical trials including microbiome data” – warmly welcome!

Date: 7th of February, 2018

Time: 17.00- 20.00

Host: Prof. Morten Sommer, DTU

Venue: DTU Biosustain, Kemitorvet, Building 220, 2800 Kongens Lyngby
