Talk Title : Making Medicines from the Microbiome

Time : 24th August 2021 – 14:00 (KL, GMT+8) / 16:00 (Sydney, GMT+10)

Dr Samuel Forster leads the Microbiota and Systems Biology Laboratory within the Centre for Innate Immunity and Infectious Diseases. Research within Dr Forster’s laboratory combines microbiology, immunology and computational biology to understand the role of gastrointestinal microbiota and determine ways to modify these communities to improve human health. His research has resulted in the development of methods to culture the majority of human gastrointestinal microbiota, advanced algorithms for metagenomics analysis and identification of rationally selected bacteriotherapy candidates and has been published in numerous journals including Nature, Nature Biotechnology, Nature Medicine, Nature Immunology and Nature Genetics.
