Almost half of the human body consists of non-human cells: microorganisms, so-called microbiomes, settle on our skin, in our intestine, mouth, respiratory tract and urogenital tract. They involve viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi and they play a crucial role in our health, but also in the development and treatment of diseases.
Professor Eran Elinav will deal with this topic in a guest lecture entitled “Microbiome Interactions in Health and Disease” on 28 January 2021. Elinav is the Professor at the Department of Immunology at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel and has been Director of the Cancer Microbiome Department at the German Cancer Research Centre in Heidelberg since 2019. In his research work, he is specially focusing on decoding molecular bases for host/microbiome interaction and their affect on our health or sickness. The Frankfurt Cancer Institute LOEWE centre (FCI) is inviting people to an online lecture at 4 p.m. on 28 January 2021, where Professor Elan Elinav will talk about his work in the field of microbiomes. The lecture will be in English.
If you would like to take part in the event, please contact the coordinator of the FCI LOEWE centre, Dr Sandra Schmitz, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
