Title: Microbes as medicines: the emergence of live biotherapeutics

Speaker: Anne Neville from Microbiotica

Venue: Johnson Matthey Lecture Theatre, Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, Philippa Fawcett Drive, Cambridge CB3 0AS

Description: The human gut microbiome is essential to our health and imbalances in the microbiota are thought to underpin many human diseases.  Advances in microbiology and genomics in recent years have made the microbiome more accessible to scientists who want to exploit it for the development of new drugs.  This talk will discuss the human gut microbiota, how it influences our health, and how it can be targeted and leveraged for the development of new medicines to treat human diseases.”
