The Gut Microbiome: Markers of Human Health,

Drug Efficacy and Xenobiotic Toxicity

 

June 25 - 26

Holiday Inn & Suites Alexandria - Old Town
625 First Street
Alexandria, Virginia

The gut microbiome is believed to play an important role in human health in areas as diverse as brain function and the immune system.  Exploring host-microbiome interactions will provide a mechanistic understanding and enable new insights in human diseases (i.e., their diagnosis, prognosis and treatment) and new perceptions of xenobiotic efficacy and/or toxicity. This workshop will review the science and initiate discussions on multiple topics, including a) identification of biomarkers of toxicity for alterations in gut microbial function, b) if changes in the microbiome can affect efficacy of medicines and c) if exposure to xenobiotics can eventually result in a disease state through changes in the microbiome.  Conclusions from his workshop will help determine where the data gaps are so that researchers can start answering these questions.

WORKSHOP GOAL
To identify data gaps that can be addressed to help determine if alterations in the gut microbiome have an effect on human health.

Microbiome

WORKSHOP AIMS
1.  To discuss and review the current science on the gut microbiome and identify areas of interest regarding its role in human health
2.  To discuss our understanding on how xenobiotic toxicity affects the microbiome
3.  To understand if there are biomarkers of disease or organ damage due to:
     -  Alterations of microbiome structure and function
     -  Endogenous microbial metabolites

POSTER SESSION
We invite you to submit an abstract for presentation during the poster session on Monday June 25, 2018.Space is limited! Please submit your abstract by Friday June 1, 2018. To submit an abstract for consideration, please send the following to Dr. Connie Chen (cchen@hesiglobal.org).

  • Title
  • Author names and affiliations
  • An abstract of up to 300 words
