Human Virome Planning Workshop
On April 29, 2022, the Common Fund held a public workshop to discuss the human virome concept. The workshop held sessions around three main concepts with discussion from invited panelists and moderators. The concepts included:
- Defining and characterizing the human virome in different tissue compartments in diverse populations across the lifespan.
- Outlining the establishment of the human virome in the neonatal period, through infancy, and into early childhood
- Describing relevant, diverse disease cohorts with appropriate longitudinal samples and clinical data available for the analysis of potential virome/microbiome associations with disease.
