More About This Workshop


The Microbiome, Mouse Models and Your Research

New roles of the microbiome are continuously being identified across a wide spectrum of diseases and conditions, highlighting the importance of advancing this research field. Models that effectively leverage the potential of the microbiome, or strategies to control its effects will be key for the advancement of discovery and pre-clinical studies, as well as validating candidate therapeutics. This workshop will focus on how to optimize your mouse models for microbiome-related studies and elucidate tools and strategies to attain your microbiome research goals.

Participants will take away the following;
→ Learn how to optimize mouse models for microbiome related studies
→ Understand how the base or background microbiome can affect their study outcome
→ Learn how husbandry practices can affect the microbiome of their models
