The microbiome field is at an inflection point. The concept of using bacteria to treat a host of common diseases looks poised to deliver clinical results, even though the concept still has to win over some skeptics. With research in drug development thriving in areas from neurodegenerative diseases to skin disorders to antibacterial resistant infections, the promise of the microbiome is growing rapidly in both academic labs and industry.
In this episode of GEN Live, we’re excited to host three outstanding leaders in the field from industry and academia to discuss the new frontier of microbiome research, recent progress, clinical potential and future challenges.
