Third Targeting Microbiota World Congress 2015

The Third World Congress on Targeting Microbiota will be held at Institut Pasteur, Paris, France on October 21-23, 2015.

21 October 2015 - 23 October 2015

A large body of evidence shows that a diverse population of micro-organisms lives in our skin, mouth, nose, lung and gut, where it plays a strategic role in regulating and possibly controlling human health, well-being, metabolism and diseases.

Among the Targeting Microbiota 2015 sessions:

The Role of Microbiota in Health and Diseases: The Mechanistic Aspects
Recent Advances on Microbiota Clinical Researches & Innovations in 2015
Microbiota & Biomarkers: From Predictive to Personalized Medicine
New Challenges to Prevent and Treat Metabolic Diseases, Cancer, Liver, Kidney, Lung and Inflammation-Related Diseases Impact of Environment, Food Conservators & Antiobiotics on the quality and biodiversity of microbiota
Can we modulate the diversity and quality of microbiota?
Skin Microbiota: Recent advances on its characterization and manipulation in diseased conditions
Fecal Microbiota Transplantation: Practical Issues & Regulation
Workshop dedicated to Exploration & Sequencing of Human Microbiota: The Perfect Signature

Focus on Environment & Food Conservators: How can we modulate and affect biodiversity of microbiota?
The Scientific Committee will discuss how food conservators with 'antibacterial' and 'antiviral' activities can affect negatively the microbiota.

The impact of more natural conservators such as polyphenols will be also discussed.

Workshop: Exploration & Sequencing of Human Microbiota: The perfect signature
All you need to know about the recent methods, devices and platforms will be presented during this workshop, organized on October 21.

A special session on Fecal Microbiota Transplantation: Practical Isses & Regulation will be held on third day.

To conclude this congress, a general discussion will be held between speakers, scientists and industry sector about Microbiota and medicine of tomorrow. Among questions which will be discussed:

Can one strain fit with all populations?
To date, the most relevant challenge: can we modulate and manipulate the human gut microbiota?
How diet, food, antibiotics, hormones, prebiotics and fecal microbiota can affect resident microbiota?
How to avoid speculations and marketing on microbiota not supported by actual data?

We hope that you will join us for this dynamic and strategic programme and look forward to welcoming you in Paris.

Marvin Edeas - Chairman of the Scientific Committee
Yuri Ikeda - Chairman of the International Society of Microbiota
