New Frontiers symposium on Microbiome

NF plaatje vk.jpg

The human microbiome (all of our microbes’ genes) can be considered a counterpart to the human genome (all of our genes). Whilst our genome is fixed for life, the microbiome is continually developing. Disruptions in our microbiome ‘ecosystem’ can lead to disease, and vice versa. Understanding the molecular interaction between us and our microbes is a fascinating area of life science and medical research. From molecular and cell biology to the implications for patients, our symposium explored the relevance of our microbial friends…or foes.




undefinedIn front of an audience of more than 340 scientists, from over 15 different countries, Prof. Paul Smits, Dean / vice-Chairman Radboud University Medical Center, opened the symposium on Microbiome.

This symposium was an outstanding chance to meet world renowned scientists, and engage with them about their thoughts and ideas about their research. New insights and findings were discussed and may lead to new fruitful collaborations with our institute.

In this special edition of our newsletter a flashback of our symposium is given including a photo impression, an overview of the poster awards and more.
