The complex microbial communities inhabiting our world act as an invisible thread that links the fate of our environment and agricultural systems with the health of humans and animals. This one-day symposium will bring together microbiome scientists from the University of Maryland and neighboring institutions with the goal of fostering dialogue across disciplinary boundaries. The program will feature oral and poster presentations, break-out sessions aimed at addressing current challenges in microbiome sciences, and networking opportunities. A limited number of complimentary registrations are still available.

This event is hosted by the University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Microbiome Sciences, which launched earlier this year with startup funding from the Grand Challenges Grants Program.
