What are you looking forward to at WISC 2016?
I am a microbiologist and a physician specializing in infectious diseases - interacting with scientists and doctors who deal with allergy and its manifestations should be quite interesting.

What new findings or insights can attendees look forward to in your session?
My hypothesis is that the perturbations to the early life microbiome are fueling the current epidemics in allergic disorders.

Keynote Lecture: Perturbing Early Life Microbiota Development and Its Immunologic Consequences

In Israel's early days, pioneers on the farm would rise at 4:00am to work the fields and milk cows. They would return for breakfast between 8:00 and 9:00am. Breakfast would revolve around their own produce of eggs, bread, dairy products, vegetables, and fruits. Today the pioneers' breakfast has evolved into a delicious experience. Every hotel serves a version of the "Israeli Breakfast," which includes vegetables, salads, cheese, eggs, smoked fish, bread, pastries, yogurts, cereal, and fruits.
