Courtyard by Marriott, Boston Downtown Boutique Hotel
17-18 November, 2021

“This event is a unique gathering of individuals from academia and industry who are collaborating to advance microbiome science. Kisaco has gone out of their way to include speakers and perspectives not found elsewhere. I look forward to attending again.”

KC Microbiome Communications Group

Why Attend

The Oral Microbiome is the second-largest and diverse microbiota in the human body, harboring over 700 species of bacteria. A complex and constantly changing habitat, it is crucial in maintaining not only oral health and oral diseases, but systemic health conditions across the body. To date, over 50 systemic diseases have been linked to an unbalanced oral microbiome, and research in this space is accelerating. Further developing a collective understanding of the role of the oral microbiome in health and disease will allow further developments in drug development, oral health, and targeted therapies in the future. 

Join us at the 6th Annual Microbiome Connect to discover the latest research relating to the oral microbiome, and its critical and underappreciated role in human health. Be a part of the discussion surrounding pre- and pro-biotics, innovative therapies.

He is presently the Associate Dean for Research, a Distinguished Professor of the Department of Oral Biology, and the Louis and Marge Atkins Endowed Professor.

Dr. Burne’s research is aimed at dissecting molecular mechanisms governing the ability of bacteria that colonize the human oral cavity to modulate gene expression in response to environmental inputs.

He is internationally recognized for his work with Streptococcus mutans and other oral streptococci; making seminal contributions to understanding the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism, stress tolerance, and intercellular communication by oral streptococci.

He has published ~200 peer-reviewed articles on these topics, as well as on the genetics, physiology, and ecology of oral biofilms, and on novel probiotic mechanisms used by beneficial bacteria to promote health in the oral microbiome.

Over 150 students, postdoctoral fellows, clinician-scientists, and international fellows have received training in his laboratory. He received the IADR Gies and IADR Hatton Awards as a Ph.D. student and the IADR’s Distinguished Scientist Award for Research in Dental Caries in 2009. Dr. Burne is currently a Fellow and Member-at-Large of the AAAS.

He then was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to carry out post-doctoral research in the USA in the field of bacterial genomics for 2 and a half years, and a second post-doc at Uppsala University (Sweden) working on microarray technology and bioinformatics.

After 9 years abroad, he returned to Spain with the Ramón y Cajal repatriation program in 2003 and initiated his own research group working on the genomics and metagenomics of oral bacteria.

In 2009, he was awarded the “Jaime Ferran” National Award for Research in Microbiology and he is currently the principal investigator of the Oral Microbiome Laboratory at the CSISP, in Spain, where he has applied metagenomics and next-generation sequencing technology to the study of dental caries, discovering the presence of bacteria which prevent the formation of cavities, as well as to the study of bacteria from breast milk, saliva, and the respiratory tract.
