Event description
In this seminar, two leading experts will discuss their research into the role and effect of microbiome on human health.

About this Event

It is increasingly recognised that bacteria, fungi and viruses found naturally in the lungs and the gut have a role in health and disease. These micro-organisms, called the ‘’microbiome’’ are responsive to changes in the environment and are increasingly thought to play a role in respiratory and cardiometabolic diseases. In this seminar, two leading experts will discuss their research into the role and effect of microbiome on human health.

Miriam Moffatt, Professor of Respiratory Genetics at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London. Professor Moffatt has worked for 30 years in the field of genetics focusing on asthma and allergy. Her talk will focus on the lung microbiome in asthma and other respiratory diseases.

Marc-Emmanuel Dumas, Chair in Systems Medicine in the Faculty of Medicine, a joint appointment with the Department of Metabolism, Digestion & Reproduction and the National Heart & Lung Institute. He develops novel research avenues in the field of metabolomics and integrative biology. His talk will focus on the role of the gut microbiome in cardiometabolic diseases with links to respiratory conditions.

All are welcome to attend. Lunch will be served following the seminar.
