Microorganisms are the most abundant living things on earth and are found in every living environment, including the inside of the human body. The relationship between microorganisms, their host and the environment is the subject of intensive research as it holds the promise of providing vital solutions for some of society’s biggest challenges including chronic diseases, antimicrobial resistance, and agricultural productivity.
The aims of the KTN Innovation Network are to develop a proactive, self-sustaining microbiome community in the UK to raise the visibility of the UK’s world leading microbiome science and enable translation of this science to the benefit of the academic institutions, start-ups, SMEs, larger established companies that operate here and to society at large. The scope of the SIG covers all microbiomes, especially those connected to human health & wellbeing, animal health & nutrition and agri-food.
