Rhode Island Microbiome Symposium 2020
January 16, 2020 - January 17, 2020
We welcome you to attend the inaugural Rhode Island Microbiome Symposium to be held January 16-17, 2020 at Avedisian Hall at the University of Rhode Island. This symposium is to bring together Rhode Island and other researchers who conduct or are interested in conducted microbiome research. The symposium will include two keynote speakers (Dr. Sarah Hird from the University of Connecticut and Dr. Tami Lieberman from MIT), formal talks from Rhode Island researchers, lightning talks for students and postdocs, a poster session and break-out sessions for bioinformatics/sequencing cores and vendors.
The goal of this symposium is to promote microbiome and microbial research in Rhode Island by bringing together researchers from state universities and hospitals who currently work on microbiome research or who are interested in starting microbiome research. We hope this symposium will stimulate networking and result in new collaborations, grant proposals and manuscripts. While the scope is broad to encourage participation, the general focus will be on microbiome research relevant to the State of Rhode Island such as ocean health, aquaculture and precision medicine initiatives.
