Register for the 2013 CHAMMP Symposium at UC Davis w/ keynote by Jeffrey Gordon

Registration for the 2013 CHAMMP Symposium, "Mucosal Health, Tending the New Terrior" to be held on Monday, September 30, 2013 on the UC Davis campus is now open!

We invite you to attend this exciting one-day symposium on the gut mucosal health and development at the interface of microbiota and immune system. The symposium will feature presentations on the recent advances and novel strategies for healing and protecting intestine in chronic inflammatory infections and disease by leveraging the "world within" microbiota and glycobiology. Dynamic interactions between pathogens and microbiota and regulation of immune system will be discussed. Noted microbiome scientist, Dr. Jeffery Gordon (Washington University) will provide the keynote lecture for the symposium. The day of speaker presentations and discussions will be followed by a panel discussion to identify the future strategies for advancing mucosal health at the interface of microbiota and immune system.

Registration to the symposium is required but free. Space is limited so register for this event before September 13, 2013. Lunch and light refreshments at the reception will be provided.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
