Description

Overview

The Microbiome: Human Medicine and Agriculture in a Microbial World is a one day conference held by the Royal Society. The conference will bring together scientists from both Agricultural and Human Microbiome sectors to discuss the barriers to technology translation and common principles across both sectors. Speakers will discuss the challenges in determining microbiota and how colonies develop. The meeting will also explore how modulation of microbiota is being used to develop medical therapeutics and improvements in agricultural productivity, covering technical challenges in determining causation and methods to drive the technology forward.

Attending this event

This open event is free to attend and is intended for those with an interest in the life sciences sector, from a variety of backgrounds including academia, industry, government, as well as regulatory, charitable and other scientific bodies.

About the conference series

The conference is part of the Society's Transforming our future conference series, launched to address the major scientific and technical challenges of the next decade and beyond. Each conference will focus on one topic and will seek to cover key issues, including:

  • The current state of the key industry sectors involved

  • The position of the UK and how it can benefit from the technology

  • The future direction of research

  • The challenges faced in turning research into commercial success

  • The skills base needed to deliver major economic scientific advances

  • The wider social and economic impacts

The conferences are a key component of the Society’s five-year Science, Industry and Translation initiative which demonstrates our commitment to reintegrate science and industry at the Society and to promote science and its value by connecting academia, industry and government.
