Symposium on Food Systems, Nutrition, & the Microbiome

Food systems are fundamental to human, animal, and planetary health. The
availability and composition of food in turn has shaped the evolution of human
and animal physiology and can contribute to diverse metabolic diseases. The
microbiome is increasingly appreciated as an integral part of this continuum from
agriculture to nutritional physiology. The goal of this symposium is to explore the
frontiers of the exciting interactions between food systems, nutrition, and the
microbiome, and emerging medical, ethical, and policy implications.
