Podcast: Microbiome Research – Opportunity or Over-hype?

This month, we’re bringing you a real highlight from our Annual Conference in Edinburgh: a live discussion about the state of microbiome research.

A panel of experts gave their views on whether microbiome research is an opportunity, or whether it’s been over-hyped.

It was a really lively event with a great audience, and it was chaired by our very own Dr Benjamin Thompson.

Panelists:
Prof Julian Marchesi, Imperial College London
Prof Jim Prosser, University of Aberdeen
Dr Lindsay Hall, University of East Anglia
Dr Thorunn Helgason, University of York

    I think that this type of research is an opportunity, as is all research. This is because maybe one day a finding might not just be overestimated, but actually beneficial.

    Great conversation. Nothing was really answered but still wonderful to hear them speak on the subject. Thank you for this!
