Registration to open today for inaugural Microbiome Symposium

February 15, 2019

Purdue is poised to become a leader in microbiome sciences with the establishment of a new research network, Purdue Applied Microbiome Sciences, or PAMS, and hopes to gain momentum in this area of research by hosting the inaugural Microbiome Symposium on May 13-14. Online registration for the symposium will open today (Feb. 15). Purdue’s initiative to expand its scope of microbiome research is supported by the recent hiring of several faculty members across multiple departments. Laramy Enders, assistant professor of entomology; Timothy Johnson, assistant professor of animal sciences; Stephen Lindemann, assistant professor of food science; and Mohit Verma, assistant professor of agricultural and biological engineering, all recently have joined the Purdue research community, and their diverse research backgrounds are helping to establish Purdue at the forefront of engineering and application of microbiome research for improving human health, agriculture and environmental sustainability.
