Welcome to Targeting Microbiota 2021

 

On behalf of the International Society of Microbiota, we are pleased to inform you that the 8th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota will be organized on October 20-22, 2021 in Paris at the Unesco.  The meeting will be a hybrid conference: in person and virtually. During both days, many oral and poster communications will be presented and will cover many hot topics.

International Space Station and hospital environments: Composition and function of microbiomes in confined built environments

Christine Moissl Eichinger Targeting Microbiota 2019
During the 7th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota scheduled on October 10-11, 2019 at the Park Inn Hotel - Krakow, Poland, the Scientific commitee will dedicate a full session related to the Built Environment Microbiome.
Prof. Christine Moissl-Eichinger from Medical University Graz, Austria will present the research work entitled "International Space Station and hospital environments: Composition and function of microbiomes in confined built environments".
 
Prof. Moissl-Eichinger highlights: "Indoor environments, where people spend most of their time, are characterized by a specific microbial community, the indoor microbiome. Most indoor environments are connected to the natural environment, but some habitats are more confined: intensive care units, operating rooms, cleanrooms and the international space station (ISS) are extraordinary living and working areas for humans, with a limited exchange with the environment. All of these man-made confined habitats are microbiologically monitored and controlled. However, these measures might apply constant selective pressures, which support microbes with resistance capacities against chemical and physical stresses and thus might facilitate the rise of survival specialists and multi-resistant strains. In this talk, special characteristics of confined indoor microbiomes will be highlighted, and their specific functions and the consequences thereof will be discussed."
