It seems obvious with hindsight: Humans have spent thousands of years evolving in close contact with microbes, so it makes sense that we have come to depend on them for certain aspects of our health and well-being. The idea that we need to rid our environment of all bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms is now wholly outdated. Our understanding of the deep interactions between the various microbiomes that live on and in our bodies has grown increasingly sophisticated as researchers have untangled these complex relationships. They continue to shed light on the many integrated pathways through which these microbes modulate and manipulate our immune system, our metabolism, and even our emotions.

In this webinar, our expert speakers will share examples of how our microbiota communicate with and even control internal signaling pathways to impact all manner of biochemical interactions.

During the webinar, the audience will:

  • Discover how humans are integrated with and depend on their various microbiomes for healthful bodily function
  • See examples of communication between the gut microbiome and human signaling pathways
  • Learn about the importance of comparative work in animal models to gain insights into human systems
  • Have the opportunity to put questions to the speakers during the live broadcast.

This webinar will last for approximately 60 minutes
