Fascinating and inspiring presentations at BIG about the brain-gut axis and the key role of all mucosal immune systems in CNS related disorders.  We still have so much to learn about how these systems operate, the function of lymphatics and how to translate what is known from animal models to human models in this field.     

The microbiome field may be part of the vanguard of preventative healthcare but this will require sophisticated trial designs, collaborations across the healthcare community to identify at risk patient populations and innovative pricing structures.
