This talk is an activity from the FEBS Junior Section, an initiative set up by students and young researchers from some of the FEBS Constituent Societies. Each month a Junior Section from one of the participant Societies organizes an online event on either a research or a career topic. This January talk is the first event of the new 2023 talk series, has an academic focus and is organised by Junior-GBM, the junior section of the GBM.
Speaker: Dr. Jonas Schlüter, New York University, USA
Topic: “Evolutionary Medicine for the Microbiome, or how to turn the gut microbiome into a novel therapeutic target”
Time: 19 January, 19:00 (CET)
For more information, see the talk summary below and visit Jonas Schlüter webpage.
The focus of this talk is on the microbiome and its interactions within bacterial communities and with the host. Jonas Schlüter's lab investigates large clinical data sets based on machine learning and AI, and develops mathematical models based on Game Theory. Also, he uses microbiome engineering to find therapeutic targets and several clinical trials have been initiated.
