Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) September 06, 2016
Microbes clobber all sorts of numerical records, such as being more long-lived than other life forms on our planet, and being one of the earth’s most plentiful organisms. Findings from studies that probe the microbiome expand our knowledge of the roles microbes play in human health and disease. And yet, is it possible scientists have studied just one percent of the microbes in any given environment?
LabRoots, the premier provider of interactive virtual events for life sciences and clinical diagnostics professionals, will soon present its annual conference highlighting recent advances.
At Microbiology & Immunology 2016, a two-day event presented entirely online, attendees from around the globe can enjoy the convenience of traveling no further than their desk, bench, or smartphone to discover presentations from internationally respected experts highlighting new research, updates on emerging-infection investigations, and new technologies used for microbe testing. Interactive live-streaming sessions will include question-and-answer sessions, and participants can earn free Continuing Education (CE) and/or Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits.
The event will be held from September 7 to 8, 2016.
It will bring the global microbiology community together online to discover new concepts, tools, and techniques, with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions. Attendance is free. Use #LRmicro to follow the conversation.
Topics include Microbiome and Your Health: The Gut Microbiome, An analysis of various microbiomes, and Effects on nutrition; Managing Regional Outbreaks of Infectious Disease: Global issues and epidemics, Methods for treatment and reducing risk, and Rapid diagnostic testing; Genetic Modification: The positive and negative of GMO, Medical applications; and Preservation of the Built Environment: Preservation and recovery of cultural properties, Clinical aspects and environmental factors, and Understanding of built environment.
James Versalovic MD, PhD, pathologist-in-chief at Texas Children's Hospital, will be among the keynote speakers.
