Next week the Center for Applied Microbiome Science (CAMS) of PMI will host Melissa Herbst-Kralovetz, PhD for our monthly seminar. Dr. Herbst-Kralovetz is an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at University of Arizona College of Medicine, Director of the Women’s Health Microbiome Initiative, and a co-investigator on the NACP renewal application. Dr. Herbst-Kralovetz’s talk title and summary follow. Dr. Herbst-Kralovetz is doing very exciting work on the vaginal microbiome, HPV, cervical cancer, and the intersection of all of these topics.

In this week’s Center for Applied Microbiome Science (CAMS) talk, Greg Caporaso will discuss cancer and the human microbiome. This will include background on this emerging field including a review of some of the most exciting recent work, as well as new projects that have arisen from my sabbatical at the National Cancer Institute (Sept 2017 through May 2018) and collaborations with the University of Arizona Cancer Center and the Partnership for Native American Cancer Prevention (NACP). I’ll conclude with discussion of other recent CAMS projects, and ideas about how applied microbiome science can help us improve our world.
