The Dark Side of the Gut: Probing the Intestinal Virome

Scientists uncover long overlooked players in the gut microbiota and their roles in disease pathogenesis.

The human gut contains a plenitude of eukaryotic and prokaryotic viruses that interact with the intestinal immune system. These viruses help build gut immune homeostasis but can also provoke inflammation and lead to pathological conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In this webinar, Kate Jeffrey will discuss identifying viruses in intestinal tissues and how virus-host interactions contribute to IBD phenotypes.

Topics to be covered

  • Characterizing the virome in intestinal tissues of patients with IBD
  • Identifying unique virus populations associated with IBD

Thursday, December 1st, 2022 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
