The Microbiome Health Research Instistute (MHRI) & Finch Therapeutics Seminar Series

The MHRI-Finch Seminar Series is a series of monthly discussions on diverse topics in microbiome research, jointly hosted by Finch Therapeutics and OpenBiome (our legal name is the Microbiome Health Research Institute). The seminar series features the work of scientific experts on subjects including basic microbiome research, human disease and the microbiome, and microbial therapeutics. Each seminar will comprise two halves: a brief, non-technical summary of the speaker's work, and a technical research talk.
