Why Attend

“In 2050 the world will require 100% more food and 70% of this must come from efficiency improvements.” - International Feed Industry Federation

Following recent bans and restrictions on the use of antibiotic growth promotors in animal feed in both the E.U. and the U.S., a huge movement to find their alternatives has begun. With evidence emerging to support the beneficial effects of microbiome manipulation through prebiotics, probiotics, and other alternative strategies, it is more important than ever to form collaborations to explore how to translate research into commercially viable products, to promote health and improve feed efficiency of livestock animals.

“International feed tonnage has exceeded 1 billion metric tons for the second consecutive year, with a total of 1.07 billion metric tons of feed produced in 2017” - The 2018 Alltech Global Feed Survey

The Animal Microbiome Congress will bring together leading experts  including veterinary researchers, animal producers, food retailers, feed and strain manufacturers and animal nutrition and pharmaceutical companies, to showcase unpublished and translatable research, changing consumer priorities, and evidence-based case studies from emerging biotech companies.

Talk to me about… your research

I am a Professor in Biostatistics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and an Associate Member at the Broad Institute.  I participated extensively in the NIH Human Microbiome Project and co-leads the "HMP2" Center for Characterizing the gut microbial ecosystem in IBD and the Human Microbiome Bioactives Resource.  My  lab focuses on computational methods for functional analysis of microbial communities.  This includes systems biology reconstructions integrating metagenomic, metatranscriptomic, and other microbial community 'omics, the human microbiome in autoimmune disease such as IBD, and its potential as a biomarker and route for therapeutic intervention.

 

Talk to me about…something people may not know about you

I'm a happy kitty parent, most recently of two new kittens who (like human babies) have as yet to learn to sleep through the night. I wish I had as much energy as they do!

I am a microbial ecologist interested in tackling important problems at the interface of basic and applied research.  The revolution in high-throughput DNA sequencing has conclusively demonstrated the importance of microbial communities for life on earth.  Microbial ecology cuts across many fields and I have applied the tools and techniques of microbial ecology to disciplines ranging from oceanography to human and animal health.  My graduate training combined classical and microbial ecology but I only considered myself a microbiologist after working in the Microbiology Department of the University of Washington, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and the University of Warwick.  Four years as a research microbiologist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service gave me first-hand knowledge of the poultry industry and a chance to apply the tools and techniques of microbial ecology to veterinary microbiology.  Most of the current focus of my research is on the poultry microbiome and its relationships to food safety, infectious disease, and poultry nutrition.  Our standard toolkit combines field work with classical microbiology, microscopy, quantitative PCR, high-throughput 16S rRNA sequencing, metagenomics, and associated bioinformatics.  We are currently funded through several intramural mechanisms, extramural grants, and industry partnerships.

Dr. McAllister has been a research scientist in Rumen Microbiology, Feed and Nutrition since 1997. His research focuses on microbiology, nutrition and beef production and on food and environmental safety issues related to livestock production, strategies for mitigation of Escherichia coli O157:H7, prion inactivation within the environment, and more recently, studies of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria in feedlots. He also has extensive research experience in GHG emissions within animals from manure and the impact of manure handling procedures, such as composting, on emissions. Dr. McAllister has conducted research to examine microbiological and nutritional approaches for mitigating ruminal methanogenesis, and emission of nitrous oxide and methane during composting, using strategies including the use of plant extracts, methanogen inhibitors and dietary formulations to limit methane production. He is the author or co-author of over 520 peer-reviewed scientific papers and 60 reviews, as well as 800 abstracts and conference proceedings, and over 100 final reports for collaborative research projects. Dr. McAllister has been recognized internationally for his leadership role and significant contributions to agricultural research and innovation in the areas of ruminant nutrition/microbiology and molecular biology as they apply to animal health, environmental health and food quality for the benefit of the agricultural industry in Alberta, Canada, and beyond.
