Annual Lecture:  Other
Title:  The Human Microbiome: Emerging Themes at the Horizon of the 21st Century
Description:  This 2017 NIH-wide microbiome workshop was organized by a planning committee of the trans-NIH Microbiome Working Group (TMWG)1, which includes program staff from the 19 NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices that support human microbiome research through their extramural portfolios. The TMWG is interested in taking stock of where the microbiome field stands after NIH’s ten-year investment in the Human Microbiome Project and evaluating what is needed for this field to advance over the next decade. This meeting will strive to cover advances that reveal the specific ways in which the microbiota influences the physiology of the host, in both a healthy and a diseased state, and how the microbiota may be manipulated, at either the community, population, organismal, or molecular level, to maintain and/or improve the health of the host. The goal of this workshop is to seek input from a trans-disciplinary group of scientists to identify (1) knowledge gaps, (2) technical hurdles, (3) new approaches, and (4) research opportunities which will inform the development of novel prevention and treatment strategies based on host/microbiome interactions over the next 10 years. The workshop closes with an Joint Agency Panel that includes the seven other government agencies which support human microbiome research activities human microbiome research activities to discuss areas of common interest and possible collaboration.
