The Gut-Brain Axis: Who's in Charge?

Event Dates: 
May 3, 2017 -
1:00pm to 6:00pm

With the Brain and the Microbiome national initiatives well underway, the time is ripe to explore the important intersection between them. Thanks to support from the Kavli Foundation, we are able to host this symposium to help define a joint Microbiome-Brain Initiative. The goal of this symposium is to bring together the Microbiome and Neuroscience sectors in hopes of bridging the Gut-Brain Axis.

Sponsored by the Kavli Foundation and The Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind.
