Interest in the microbiome and its role in health and disease is a rapidly growing research focus for academic institutions, biotech and pharmaceutical companies. Many research areas from immunology, to oncology to metabolic disease are being impacted by the commensal microbes of the host. Interest in the microbiome is expanding rapidly as are the insights into its role in health and disease states.
The presentation will include a brief history of the microbiome in research, a discussion of health standards and host interaction with the gut flora, care and use of gnotobiotic and germ-free models and a review of current studies involving the microbiome.
Topics include:
  • Best practices for gnotobiotic and germ free models
  • Research areas related to microbiome research
  • Choosing appropriate models for microbiome studies
  • The care and use of gnotobiotic models
The webinar will help viewers:
  • Understand the role of microbiome in different disease areas.
  • Gain knowledge of factors to consider in selecting an appropriate model for a research protocol
  • Gain insight into the role of SFB (segmented filamentous bacteria) in studies and the importance of knowing the SFB status of your models
