Georgia World Congress Center, Building B, Level 4, Rooms B405-B406
2.50 CME/CE
Dennis Ownby , MD FAAAAI

Learning Objectives:
  1. Describe the essential vocabulary of the microbiome field and elemental microbiome research methodology
  2. Describe bacteria and fungi that have been identified in microbiome studies and how viruses, pets and other pests may influence these populations
  3. Discuss the biologic and immunologic effects of airway and gut microbiomes and how these affect the inception and progression of childhood asthma and atopy; Discuss the consequences of changes in the airway microbiome on genetic regulation of airway inflammation
