IMPACTT Microbiome Symposium | June 14-16, 2021

The Integrated Microbiome Platforms for Advancing Causation Testing and Translation (IMPACTT), the International Microbiome Centre (IMC) and the University of Calgary are organizing a microbiome symposium;

“Having IMPACTT: Advancing Microbiome Research.”

This microbiome symposium will be of interest to researchers, clinicians and trainees from across Canada and Internationally.
The importance of human microbiome research is rapidly gaining momentum for understanding its role in human health and disease. Our goal for this symposium is to bring together the leading minds in microbiome research and highlight the emerging microbiome teams from across Canada. We will introduce you to IMPACTT: A pan-Canadian inter-disciplinary research core at the University of Calgary, designed to advance Canadian microbiome research. IMPACTT leverages the world-class resources provided by the International Microbiome Centre. From causation testing to translational studies, our leads and other world-class researchers will share their findings about how our microbes shape our health and how to harvest our microbes to improve the well-being for people and animals around the world.The themes we will cover in this symposium include microbiome impacts throughout life in both health and chronic diseases, such as cancer, inflammation and autoimmunity.
The University of Calgary is devoted to research excellence and innovation. We look forward to hosting you virtually!
