Thought Leader in Microbiome Research Jack Gilbert to Present at Arrowhead Publishers’ 3rd Annual Translational Microbiome Conference

2 December 2016 – Minneapolis, MN – Jack Gilbert, the faculty director of The Microbiome Center and professor at the University of Chicago, has just been announced as the keynote speaker at Arrowhead Publishers’ 3rd Annual Translational Microbiome Conference. This conference will once again unite top companies in the microbiome space working to successfully commercialize microbiome-based diagnostics and therapeutics. This conference will be taking place April 11-13, 2017 in Boston, MA. For more information on the conference, visit: http://www.microbiomeconference.com.

As the human microbiome is quickly demonstrating huge roles in the human ecosystem, scientists are discovering that changes in the microbiome have a huge impact on a variety of conditions and diseases. Dr. Gilbert will discuss the latest evidence of these mechanisms of interaction, and how we have started to disturb the delicate balance of immune-microbe equilibrium, thus impacting the development and function of our immune systems. By applying new strategies to identify how the microbial ecosystem correlates with diseases and treatment efficacy through Microbiome-Wide Association Studies (MWAS), microbiome studies are providing a new framework for facilitating patient care.

With an increasing awareness that many of our modern diseases are “lifestyle” related and more than 50% of current medications are ineffective for the people taking them, research in the microbiome presents a potential opportunity to provide more effective treatments, cures, therapies and supplements. Reflective of this trend is the fact that investment opportunities are growing in this area and many companies are rapidly moving towards potential translational work. 

Arrowhead Publishers’ 3rd Annual Translational Microbiome Conference 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 integral components of successful businesses.
