Seminar-The microbiome and HIV in women"Proteomics–based systems biology approaches to study the functional microbiome and host immunity in HIV"
presents a seminar by:
The microbiome is an important determinant of overall health. However, changes to the microbiome can lead to alterations to host immunity and increased disease risk, but advanced tools to study functional properties of the microbiome have been limited. Here I will discuss how we incorporate proteomics-based systems biology approaches to study the functional microbiome in large human cohorts, and our recent work showing how it relates to inflammation, HIV susceptibility, and efficacy of HIV drugs used for HIV prevention in women
