Please watch this space, but so far we can confirm that we WILL be holding an OMIG symposium at the BSODR meeting on 2-3 Sept 2021 in Birmingham.

We will have a range of long and short talks from hot topics in Oral microbiology and will update here soon- but if you were thinking of registering, then this will be GOOD!!!!

OMIG symposium 16-06-21: Dr Susan Joseph

This week- Wed 16th June, 1PM UK time we are happy to present Dr Susan Joseph, with her talk on “Development of a curated murine oral microbiome database reveals host-specific oral bacterial lineages”

Susan completed an MRes in Applied Biosciences (2008) and PhD (2013) in Molecular Microbiology from Nottingham Trent University. Her doctoral thesis focussed on the development of a genus-wide MLST scheme and whole-genome analysis of the neonatal pathogen, Cronobacter. After a postdoctoral position at New York University working on the environmental microbiome of NYC, she joined the Curtis lab at QMUL in 2016, with the subsequent move to King’s College.

Her major research interests lie in understanding how microbial communities interact with each other and their host in a specific ecological niche while also selectively transforming into an infectious cohort during disease. Her current research is based on the role of the oral microbiome in the development of disease and maintenance of health, primarily working with mouse models of dysbiosis and periodontal disease.
