Experts meeting on Human microbiome applications in therapies – Thursday March 18, 2021

BaseClear routinely organises expert meetings wherein scientists and application specialist meet, share and discuss microbiome projects, challenges and opportunities related to human health. Our next experts meeting is title “Human Microbiome Applications in Therapies” and is scheduled for Thursday March 18, 2021. This meeting will be hosted online. Due to the interactive nature of this meeting, the number of participants is limited.

Microbiomes play a vital role in human health. However there is still much research to be done to understand the functional links between the microbiome and disease. The industry is advancing rapidly by linking the microbiome to human health including identifying early risk factors of diseases and learning how the microbiome influences our ability to respond to therapies.

Many people have health problems related to gut dysbiosis. Through my studies, I’ve learnt a lot about the gut microbiome and I’d like to use my knowledge to improve people’s wellbeing through applications developed with microbial genomics,” she comments. Eline advises clients about genomics analyses for expert projects for clinical trials and the food industry. "As a human microbiome expert, customers value my contribution to interpretation of the analyses to support their projects. I make an important contribution to the success of their research due to my specialised academic background,” she notes.
