Targeting Microbiota 2020 will be a Virtual Congress

The organizing committees decided to organize the 8th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota as Virtual Meeting.

Targeting Microbiota 2020 Congress is not a webinar. All registered attendees will have access to the platform when they wish and at any time.

Due to restriction and time zone difference, a pre-recorded contribution can be separately viewed online from the date of the conference, October 22, 2020, until November 23rd, via the use of access code. For more info: Frequently Asked Questions.

Individual differences in the microbiome and metabolome during circadian misalignment and sleep restriction

Kenneth P. Wright Microbiota 2018 Speakers

Prof. Kenneth Wright from the University of Colorado Boulder, USA will give a short oral presentation on Individual differences in the microbiome and metabolome during circadian misalignment and sleep restriction: associations with the ability to maintain wakefulness during 6th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2018 Congress which will be held in Porto,  on October 28-30, 2018.

Summary of presentation: "Circadian and sleep disruption are common in modern society with round the clock work operations in shift-workers and due to many people sleeping less than the recommended amount of hours each night.  Circadian misalignment—behaviors such as wakefulness-sleep and energy intake-fasting that occur at inappropriate internal biological times—and sleep loss are ideal conditions under which to study the microbiota-gut-brain axis as circadian misalignment and sleep loss are associated with gastrointestinal distress, metabolic dysregulation, and cognitive impairment. Findings from a study aimed to determine the influence of circadian and sleep disruption on 1) the microbiota-gut-brain axis, 2) the stability of individual differences in the microbiome, the microbiome metabolome, and human host physiology/behavior, and 3) associations between alterations in microbiome metabolome with an objective measure of alertness will be presented."
