Metagenomic and Metabolomic Studies of Host-Microbiotal Contributions to Health and Disease

Symposium — Sunday, April 7, 2019 — 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM — Convention Center, Room W308AB
Physiological Omics Group — Chair: Bina Joe — Co-Chair: Justine M. Abais-Battad
Cosponsored by AJP - Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology and Physiological Reviews

Microbiotal contributions to health and disease is an exploding area of research in many fields including metabolism, immunity and more recently in cardiovascular diseases. This Symposium is intended to capture the latest knowledge in both metagenomic and metabolomic studies, which have led to pioneering discoveries in the fields spanning the influence of genes and environment on metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular physiology. Because speakers are drawn from a variety of fields with the main concept binding them being the role of microbiota, it is expected that this symposium will attract a large audience.
