1 hour Q&A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4No2o9fZrc. It had some interesting parts. I would have been interested to hear what the panelists think about humanmicrobes.org and https://humanmicrobiome.info/fmt (and https://humanmicrobiome.info/where-to-get-fmt), as they discussed similar sites & topics.

Dr. Alexander Khoruts (University of Minnesota GI, Director, UMN Microbiota Therapeutics Program) made a concerning and depressing statement about the FDA at 43:30. He asks an FDA adviser "Does the FDA care more about profits or people?", and the response he gets is "one of the missions of the FDA is to protect the interests of commercial developers". Another question to the advisor: "How much influence does the industry have over the FDA decisions?", A: "A lot".
 
Format correct?
