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:

  1. Defining and characterizing the human virome in different tissue compartments in diverse populations across the lifespan.
  2. Outlining the establishment of the human virome in the neonatal period, through infancy, and into early childhood
  3. Describing relevant, diverse disease cohorts with appropriate longitudinal samples and clinical data available for the analysis of potential virome/microbiome associations with disease.

The summary report of this workshop is now available.
