About this event

The London Microbiome Meeting creates a forum to share, promote & debate topics in the field of Human Microbiome Research, providing a broad overview of the latest research findings and methodological advancements. We are delighted to announce that this year’s meeting will be run by a collaboration of the Department of Twin Research and the Department of Nutritional Sciences as we direct attention to the impact of nutrition/diet on the gut microbiota and how this relationship affects the field of human microbiome research. This is an amazing opportunity to develop a microbiome/nutrition research network between research groups and institutions across London and Internationally.
