Chances & Challenges when investigating the skin microbiome
Dr. Rainer Simmering from Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Germany will join the Skin Ageing & Challenges 2020 Congress which will be organized on November 8-9 as virtual congress and will give a presentation entitled “Chances & Challenges when investigating the skin microbiome“.
Summary of the Talk: To understand the skin microbiome uses modern technologies are used and many hypotheses aim to understand the composition of the respective ecosystem. Even though the knowledge of the microbial composition is of great importance, it might not always be properly assessed and the results might get misinterpreted. On top the phylogenetic information might not explain always the functionalities observed in a microbial ecosystem. The talk aims to discuss the changes the knowledge of the skin microbiome will have in the future but also will pinpoint some pitfalls.
