Microbiome Interest Group

MANA’s Microbiome Task Group formed following a successful workshop at the 1st annual MANA meeting in 2019. It aims to facilitate microbiome-focused metabolomics research by providing general guidance on the gold standards in the field and by fostering new networking opportunities for our members across the multidisciplinary scientific communities. We would like to hear from you if you are interested in joining the MANA Microbiome Task Group to focus on and develop topics related to application of metabolomics in microbiome research. This group is led by Maryam Goudarzi, Kehau Hagiwara, Ewy Mathe, and Robert A. Quinn.

Our seminars will occur online the second Monday of every month at 8am PT.

The next speaker in the MANA Microbiome Interest Group seminar series is

Dr. Shelley McGuire of the University of Idaho, who will present "The Human Milk Microbiome: A Brief Review of a Recent Paradigm Shift"

During this interesting presentation, Dr. McGuire will review her lab's research efforts to reveal the human milk microbiome, factors that affect its composition (such as diet and geographical location), as well as whether breastfeeding is a mode of transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
