Massively parallel screening of microbial communities to discover live biotherapeutics (ID Epi Seminar Series)
February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This hybrid in-person/virtual webinar will be presented by Jared Kehe, Chief Scientific Officer at Concerto Biosciences. The in-person portion will be held in Kresge G2. Attending either in-person or Zoom requires registration with the following link. Register here.
Dr. Jared Kehe is a cofounder of Concerto Biosciences, a biotech company that rebuilds microbial communities in, on, and around us to heal our bodies and our planet. Jared invented kChip, the only ultra-high-throughput platform to measure millions of microbial interactions. Using kChip data, Concerto maps interaction networks that reveal “ensembles”—groups of microbes that shepherd damaged microbial communities to health.
