Bridging Session_Scientific Program

Session Description
CRISPR and designer microbes Presentation on the basic science and the targeted genome-editing technology of CRISPR-Cas systems. This session will cover the discovery, development, and application of genome-editing techniques using CRISPR-Cas systems including the bacterial immunity, some designed microbes, and new therapeutics for the human diseases.
Microbiome – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
(virome, bacteriome, mycobiome)
Presentation on basic, applied, and translational research on the functions and underlying mechanism of microbiome. This session will provide the state-of-art lectures on basic understanding complicated host-microbes interaction and potential application to biomedical sciences.
Preparedness for Disease X and AMR Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases continue to pose a threat to public health around the world. Rapid urbanization increased mobility and global economic interdependence exacerbate this threat and add to the challenge of containment. Being adequately prepared to detect, manage and respond to emerging infectious disease outbreaks has never been so imperative. We will invite 3 leading international scientists all focusing on emerging infectious diseases and pandemic risk for this session
Getting to Know Each Other - Polymicrobial Host Interaction It is being recognized that the majority of microbial infections are associated with interactions of various types of microbial pathogens including viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites in the same host. The interaction between the different microbes, polymicrobial interactions, often influences disease progress and severity, as well as drug susceptibility of the microbe and the host. This session aims to promote exchanging information and to recognize the significance regarding recent research about polymicrobial interactions with the host.
