uBiome to Host Second Annual Microbiome Conference at JP Morgan 37th Annual Healthcare Conference
Date:12/27/2018

uBiome, the leader in microbial genomics, announces the second annual Microbiome Conference at JPM as part of the JP Morgan 37th Annual Healthcare Conference in San Francisco, which brings together industry leaders, emerging fast-growth companies, innovative scientists and physicians, and members of the investment community.

Since its origin in 1983, the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference has grown to welcome thousands of investors and companies from new startups to those with more than $300 billion in market capital, encompassing the entire global healthcare landscape including pharmaceutical firms, healthcare service providers, profit and not-for-profits, and medical device companies.

The microbiome has a profound effect on human health, including synthesizing vitamins, metabolizing nutrients, impacting immune response, and interacting with hormones to affect human health. Given that recent research suggests microbes influence body systems and various health conditions, understanding and further manipulating these interactions may allow for better management and treatment of conditions.

“uBiome is excited to be a part of JPM and we look forward to discussing the implications of the microbiome for healthcare with leaders in the industry,” Dr. Jessica Richman, PhD, co-founder and CEO of uBiome said, “The microbiome is essential for human health, and JPM is the ideal place to continue this dialogue.”
