Impact of Environmental Exposures on the Microbiome and Human Health

February 23 - 24, 2021
Virtual Meeting

Impact of Environmental Exposures on the Microbiome and Human Health Agenda

Meeting Purpose

This workshop is part of the NIEHS Microbiome outreach activities assessing the impact of environmental exposures on human health. The goals of the workshop were as follows:

  1. To understand the relationship between environmental agents, the microbiome, and human health
  2. To build a network of environmental health microbiome researchers
  3. To determine if best practices can be developed by assessing environmental contaminants and the microbiome

This workshop was a 2-day format, with a plenary lecture each day and speakers covering the following 4 topics:

  • Health and Toxicity
  • Environmental Exposures
  • Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion (ADME)
  • Models and Methods

The workshop was free and open to the public. Plenary talks, speaker sessions, and lightning-round (3 min) presentations over lunch were webcast. Breakout sessions were held for each of the 4 topic areas and reports from the breakouts were presented at the end of each day. See the Printable Agenda (91KB).

Lightning Talks

Lightning talks are short presentations on any microbiome-focused work that relates to one of the 4 main topics of the workshop (Health and Toxicity, Environmental Exposures, Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion (ADME), and/or Models and Methods). Talks were 3 minutes in length and 2 minutes for questions, with no more than 3 - 4 slides total. Talks were webcast.

Recordings

Recordings of the Morning session and Lightning talks are available at NIEHS Scientific Seminars video repository.
