Annual Harvard Chan Microbiome in Public Health Center Symposium
May 15th @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Microbial communities beyond the bacteriome
We are delighted to invite everyone to the fifth annual Harvard Chan Microbiome in Public Health Center (HCMPH) symposium on May 15, 2023. Registration is free of charge, and we are happy to oer a hybrid event format this year, in-person at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center in Boston’s Longwood area, with online streaming also available. Talks and posters will be accessible both virtually and in person, with a Slack workspace available to facilitate communication among all attendees. This meeting format has been generously sponsored by Corundum Systems Biology in order to permit as wide of attendance as possible for microbiome scientists locally and around the globe.
The symposium’s theme this year will focus on non-bacterial members of the human microbiome and microbial communities, including studies of viral, archaeal, fungal, and other often-overlooked microbes that can play unique roles in health and environmental phenotypes.
Our keynote speakers are:
Rick Bushman, University of Pennsylvania
Joseph Petrosino, Baylor College of Medicine
Nikos Kyrpides, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
Attendees are invited to submit posters from which additional short talks will be selected.
