Animal Models for Microbiome Research: Advancing Basic and Translational Science
December 19, 2016 @ 9:00 am - December 20, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
Join the ILAR Roundtable for a free 2-day workshop on December 19-20, 2016, to examine animal models of microbiome research. Invited speakers will discuss challenges of standardization and biological variability in using gnotobiotic model organisms, examine the translatability of preclinical studies to humans, identify alternative model organisms that can be used in microbiome research, and discuss strategies for expanding the infrastructure and tools for conducting studies in these types of models.
This workshop will be held at 500 5th Street NW, Washington, DC and will be freely available via webcast. We invite you to join us in person or via webcast, and you can register to attend by clicking here.
