Model Systems to Understand Microbiota-host Interactions
Durham University (Durham Business School)
April 23-24, 2014
This focused workshop will explore model systems that are currently being developed to enhance our understanding host- microbiota interactions. An emphasis of the meeting will be a discussion about how these models can help those working with the human microbiota and future directions.

Format of the Meeting
This focused workshop will bring 10-20 of the leading researchers in the field of microbiota-host interactions together for two days of discussion and collaboration. The meeting will begin on Wednesday the 23 April 2014 and finish on the 24 April with an informal BBQ.
Accommodation will be at Collingwood College, Durham University, UK and the meeting sessions will be held in Durham Business School (an interactive map is available on the Durham University website).
The meeting is sponsored by the BBSRC and Durham University’s Biophysics Sciences Institute.
Meeting Organisation: Dr David Weinkove (Durham University School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences) and Dr Sushmita Maitra (Durham University School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences).
