Education & Training

Building a Community for Inter-disciplinary Research
Focused on training the next generation of microbiome researchers.

We will offer a variety of opportunities to educate and train the next generation of microbiome scientists and clinicians.

Virtual Workshops

This spring, we are offering virtual workshops in Microbial Bioinformatics and Metabolomics. These sessions are open to all UCSF trainees, staff, and faculty. See upcoming sessions listed on our Events page. If you missed past sessions and want to access the recordings, contact Kristin Dolan ([email protected]).


Annual Symposium

Our BCMM Annual Symposium brings together leaders in the field of human microbiome research to share the latest developments and foster collaboration.

Our 2020 Symposium, originally scheduled for April 28th, has been postponed due to COVID-19. We will post more details when the event is rescheduled.


Summer Internships for Bay Area Youth

In partnership with the Mayor's office of San Francisco, we are offering summer research internships for high school students interested in the human microbiome.

The Summer 2020 internship program has been cancelled due to COVID-19. Stay tuned for application dates in Spring 2021.
