Keynote Presentation: Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Diseases Meet the Microbial World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ABSTRACT
No scientific discovery in the last decade has been more shocking than the realization of just how thoroughly our health depends upon the trillions of microbes that call our bodies home. And nowhere is this realization more clinically relevant than in diseases of the brain and body characterized by immune dysregulation and heightened inflammation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Cutting edge view of microbial human interactions that are increasingly implicated in autoimmune/inflammatory conditions
  • Evidence that the current epidemic of autoimmunity has arisen in large measure as a result of disruptions in ancient co-evolved relationships with the microbial world
  • Novel treatment implications of a human-microbial view of health and well-being
