The Conference on Human Microbiome and Chronic disease

May 12 - 13, 2018, China National Convention Center, Beijing

About the Conference

Human microbiota has a significant impact on human health, and many diseases including cancer have been associated with specific bacterial species in the gut microbiota. Various initiatives are underway around the world to survey the human microbiota at several body sites, with goals to understand the interactions between human host and the microbiota, elucidating specific role in disease association, which may lead to possible new therapeutic tools for clinical intervention.

The Conference on Human Microbiome and Chronic disease (CHMC 2018), hosted by the Institute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Society of Biotechnologywill be held in China National Convention Center at Beijing ( during May 12-13, 2018. The main conference hall is approx. 6,000 square meters and the number of participants is expected to exceed 2,000, which includes government officials, researchers, doctors, teachers, students and others who are interested in the microbiome and health.

The purpose of CHMC 2018 is to promote research human microbiome and related technology development inside China, and collaboration between Chinese scientists and others worldwide. The CHMC 2018 will be held annually in Beijing thereafter.

The CHMC 2018 will cover a wide range of topics that include:

  • Human gut microbiome and chronic Disease
  • Chronic infections, respiratory tract microbiome and gut microbiota
  • Innate and adaptive immune system and interactions with gut microbiota
  • Human gut microbiota and cancer treatment
  • New bioinformatics tools for microbiome analysis
  • Human gut microbiome in nutrition and metabolism
  • Moving microbiome research into human populations and beyond

We look forward to seeing you in Beijing!

On behalf of the CHMC 2018 committee!
