EVENT DESCRIPTION  
 
Event Type:  Workshop (This is an NIH Science event)
 
Title:  RESCHEDULED: Next Steps in Studying Human Microbiome and Health in Prospective Studies
 
Description:  Due to inclement weather in the DC metro area, we rescheduled the Workshop “Next Steps in Studying the Human Microbiome and Health in Prospective Studies,” originally planned for March 14-15, 2017, to May 16-17, 2017.

This two-day workshop is sponsored by NCI's Metabolic Epidemiology Branch Policy in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) and Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS). It will focus on:

-Bringing together diverse scientists to discuss and seek consensus on optimum methods for collecting oral, fecal, and tissue samples for multi-omics analyses;
-Examining the degree of variation caused by DNA extraction, amplification, sequencing, and bioinformatics methods and the best methods to handle variation in future studies;
-Evaluating the statistical methods for pooling microbiome data from multiple studies;
-Addressing the best types of quality control samples to monitor variation in sample handling between sample batches, studies, and laboratories and which can assess stability during long-term storage; and
-Reporting and data sharing standards for epidemiological studies of the human microbiome.

The workshop format will include opportunities for researchers to hear from public health leadership, interact and explore these topics in breakout sessions, and to network.
