Speaker Profile

N.D., Naturopathic Physician, Human Universal Health Institute, BioVital Health

Biography
Dr. Haroldo Magarinos is a Chilean dentist with specializations in periodontics, oral medicine and implantology. After over a decade of conventional practice, Dr. Magarinos decided to pursue his passion and become a naturopathic doctor, graduating in 2018 from the Naturopathic Doctor program at the American College of Integrative Medicine. He is certified by the American Naturopathic Certification Commission and received an additional specialization in Integrative Biological Dental Medicine certified by the American Commission of Medicine and Integrative Dentistry. Dr. Magarinos has long been a strong advocate for the study of the human microbiome, with a firm belief that treating patients with dysbiosis has the power to prevent and even reverse many prevalent forms of chronic disease. His interest in this integrative field started with his own personal explorations in optimizing vitality for himself and his friends and family, which has now grown to be a professional passion.

Talk
Integrative Approach To The Human Microbiome Regulation
Considering the increased amount of evidence available regarding the huge role the microbiome plays in human health, it’s imperative to consider new and better strategies to rebalance and protect this complex and diverse ecosystem. Using nature and technology in an integrative approach, we have developed protocols that can analyze and regulate this in a comprehensive way improving multiple health conditions related to this important area of medicine.


 Session Abstract – PMWC 2020 Silicon Valley


Understanding mechanism of action and translating microbiome science into commercially viable therapeutics remains the biggest challenge in this emerging field. With that said, pharma and biotech across many different therapeutic indications and modalities are united in this global effort to bring novel microbiome-based therapies and diagnostics into the clinical domain. This session will include some of the most impactful and promising areas of the microbiome field:

  • Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT)
    To date, FMT, or the transfer of donor feces containing gut microbiota from a healthy individual to restore microbial diversity in patients, has been used for the treatment of patients with chronic gastrointestinal infections and inflammatory bowel diseases. Now there is great interest in its therapeutic potential for other applications. This session will explore the use of FMT for IBD, IBS, metabolic syndrome, neurodevelopmental disorders, and autoimmune diseases, among others.
    - Tor Savidge, Baylor College of Medicine
  • Microbiome Profiling through “Omics” Methods
    Advances in sequencing and analysis tools have provided unprecedented insight and resolution into the microbiome and is enabling researchers and clinicians to monitor shifts in the microbiome-- from taxonomic profiling to metabolomics and proteomics. This session will uncover some of the latest and most advanced tools for microbiome analysis and where the current trends are taking the industry next.

    - Martha Carlin, The BioCollective
    - Aaron Del Duca, DayTwo
    - Brian Keppler, Metabolon
    - Morten Isaksen, Bio-Me AS
    - Dan Knights, CoreBiome
    - Sanjay Joshi, Dell EMC
  • The Skin Microbiome
    Human skin is populated by diverse bacteria and there is increasing evidence that resident bacteria play a key role initiating immune responses in numerous diseases. This session will look at techniques to modulate the skin microbiome composition as a therapeutic option in diseases affecting the skin such as psoriasis and acne vulgaris.
    - Mark S. Wilson, MatriSys Bioscience
    - Larry Weiss, Persona Biome, Inc.
  • Microbiome And Metabolic Disorders
    Advances in microbiome research are spurring the development of new therapeutics for a variety of diseases. This session will explore recent discoveries in gut microbiome interventions for promoting human health and combating disease. These approaches include microbiome modulation or direct impact on the host through nutritional intervention, either by prebiotics or by individualized diets.
    - Colleen Cutcliffe, Pendulum Therapeutics
  • Gastroenterology & the Microbiome
    This session will take the perspective of the clinician, as the microbiome approaches the clinic and will focus on how novel microbiome science can be communicated to classically trained gastroenterologists and other clinicians, in order to prepare them to bring these practices to patients.
    - Haroldo Magarinos, BioVital Health
  • Pre-Clinical & Clinical Development
    A new and exciting aspect of mirobiome research focuses on personalization of interventions, as well as harnessing the inherent individualized variability in microbiomes and other physiological features. This session will aim to provide insight into best practices and the pitfalls to avoid.
