WELCOME

Arrowhead Publishers is pleased to announce the return of the Annual Translational Microbiome Conference – live and in-person, on April 17-18, 2023 in Washington DC. The Translational Microbiome Conference was the first microbiome conference in the field to focus on the hurdles and challenges to commercial success in the space and continues to expand on that mission yearly, bringing well considered and curated content to a diverse audience at an affordable price.

CONFERENCE FOCUS

Entering its 8th year in 2023, the meeting will continue to focus and build on the challenges and hurdles that companies working in the microbiome space will have to recognize and navigate in order to successfully commercialize their products. With a broad focus spanning multiple disease states (oncology, dermatology, inflammatory disorders, among others) attendees will have the opportunity to hear the leading companies discuss the work they have underway and how they are meeting these challenges head-on to apply recent discoveries to a variety of disease processes, restoration of health and improved outcomes.

CONFERENCE TOPICS & THEMES

  • Mapping the microbiome at the molecular level
  • Cancer and the microbiome
  • Microbial dysbiosis and various disease states
  • Type 1 diabetes, obesity and the gut microbiome
  • The oral microbiome and its correlation with chronic systemic conditions
  • Diet and the microbiome-gut-brain axis
  • Synthetic biology-based microbiome therapeutics
  • The infant gut microbiome
  • Biomarker discovery for microbiome-related diseases
  • Clinical metagenomics for precision infectious disease diagnostics
  • Bioinformatic tools and AI to support the use of microbial genomic data
  • Precision microbiome analysis
  • Women's health and the microbiome
  • Regulatory guidelines for microbiome based therapeutics
  • Standards for microbiome measurements

LAST YEAR'S EXHIBITORS AND SPONSORS

Banking Your Personal Biome

(Guest Bloggers, Sasha Lieberman, Nonprofit Management Fellow and Carolyn Edelstein, Director of Policy and Global Partnerships, OpenBiome)

Mark Smith and James Burgess were inspired to found OpenBiome after a family friend who had suffered with repeated C. difficile infections shared his story of having to resort to performing a DIY fecal transplant at home. Since its founding in 2012, OpenBiome has been committed to enabling safe access to fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) by providing rigorously screened, ready-to-use microbiota preparations for use in FMT and by catalyzing research into the human microbiome.

This year, OpenBiome launched PersonalBiome, a pilot service that allows individuals who are at risk of contracting C. diff to preserve a copy of their healthy microbiome. In the event that these individuals do end up experiencing recurrent C. diff infections, participants can retrieve their sample from their PersonalBiome bank to repopulate their gut with their own healthy microbial community. PersonalBiome pushes OpenBiome’s mission to provide safe microbiota treatments from its pool of universal stool donors forward by expanding the available options for repopulating the gut microbiome following a C. diff infection.

In some ways, the service resembles that of private umbilical cord blood banking. A practice that began in the early 1990s, cord blood banking is now undertaken by a network of over 100 cord blood banks and transplant centers that have stored over 400,000 units of cord blood worldwide. The vast majority of banked cord blood is for use by unrelated donors, but private banks have arisen to give families the option of storing their own cord blood, a service that is most useful for those with family members who have a current or potential need for a stem cell transplant.

Current FDA regulations governing FMT only permit physicians to treat patients with FMT outside of a clinical trial, if the patient experiences repeated, unresolvable C. diff. These regulations apply equally to one’s own stool as well as stool from a universal bank. However, co-founder and executive director James Burgess, featured in this recent FastCompany article about the PersonalBiome pilot project, envisions a future in which high-risk patients can bank their microbiomes to help prevent and treat other microbiome-associated diseases.
