In the rapidly developing field of microbiome and brain-gut microbiome research, it is critically important for clinicians and researchers to share information and build relationships in order to facilitate further advances.

The Goodman-Luskin Microbiome Center (GLMC) will play a vital role by hosting educational events that bring together people from all relevant specialties and at all stages of their careers, so established leaders and those bringing fresh perspectives can share findings and interact in ways that will help advance the field.
