North Carolina Microbiome Consortium
Mission and Goals
The North Carolina Microbiome Consortium provides the opportunity for interested and committed participants in academia, industry and the public to seek and share knowledge concerning the science of the microbiome. It seeks to foster interdisciplinary connections among scientists in diverse fields who share a common interest in microbial communities and with those who develop the tools needed to study and understand these communities. By coming together in this common pursuit of knowledge and the exchange of ideas, participants acknowledge the depth of local expertise; seek to establish North Carolina as a recognized leader in microbiome research and innovation, and aim to create greater opportunities for microbiome research and related industries in the state.
Faculty, students, postdocs and industry members with interest in the Microbiome are welcome.
The NC Microbiome Consortium will host it's inaugural kickoff event on May 15, 2017 at the North Carolina Biotechnology Center - details coming soon!
