Overview

Assessment of Needs

In this webinar, we will first provide an overview of the microbiome and review its role in human health and disease. We will then discuss both previous and new data demonstrating the critical role of the microbiome in HIV transmission and pathogenesis, and will what mechanisms underlie the impact of the microbiome in HIV. We will then discuss novel data for the role of the microbiome in COVID-19 disease, and how the microbiome may contribute to both acute disease, disease severity, and chronic COVID-19 symptoms. Finally, we will go over current and future strategies for manipulating the microbiome.
