“As we are becoming increasingly aware of the vital role that indigenous human microbiota plays in regulating host health and behavior, we must improve our ability to prove causality in this relationship, which is what I intend to keep contributing toward.”

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Award Mariana IlhaGut-Derived Indole-3-Propionic Acid May Modulate the Mitochondrial Organization in Hepatic Stellate Cells Mariana Ilha, University of Eastern Finland, Finland

“Receiving this award was very nice and gives me more energy and confidence to continuous my research about the influence of the gut derived metabolite indole-3- propionic acid in mitochondrial function and future possible compound for the resolution of liver fibrosis”

 

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Award Cristina Rosell CardonaDietary Supplementation with Spray-Dried Porcine Plasma Has Prebiotic Effects on Gut Microbiota in Senescent Mice - Cristina Rosell-Cardona, Universitat de Barcelona, Spain

"Currently, my research is focused on the effects of spray-dried plasma proteins on microbiota composition and its neuroprotective effects against Alzheimer’s disease hallmarks in senescent mice. Next year, I would like to study if these effects are linked through the gut-brain axis. Personally, I am about to finish my PhD and I am looking forward to finding new opportunities to develop my research career, improve my skills, and look deeply into the gut-brain axis field."

“For the next year, we would like to complete this study notably by characterizing the mechanisms which promote the beneficial effects of S.boulardii CNCMI-745 in the treatment of the vulvovaginitis and publish all these data in a peer-to-peer scientific journal.”

Scientific Awards of Targeting Microbiota 2021

Microbiota banner online

Targeting Microbiota 2021 was successully held on October 20-22 2021, as an Interactive Online meeting. 

At the end of the congress, the scientific committee decided to award some speakers for their excellent contribution. 

 

Scientific Award #1

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Rosa Krajmalnik Brown07After an excellent and special talk about "Microbiota Transfer Therapy for Autism: Multi-Omic Approaches and Lessons Learned", Dr. Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown was discerned the Trageting Microbiota 2021 Scientific Award. 

Dr. Krajmalnik-Brown gave an overview on her achievements and perspective in Autism Disorders. She is the director of the Biodesign Center for Health Through Microbiomes and a Professor at the School of Sustainable Engineering and The Built Environment, at Arizona State University, USA.

She is a pioneer in research on gut microbiome and autism. She is author of 4 patents and more than 115 peer-reviewed publications.  Dr. Krajmalnik-Brown specializes on molecular microbial ecology for bioremediation, the use of microbial systems for bioenergy production, and the human intestinal microbial ecology and its relationship to obesity, bariatric surgery, metabolism, and autism.

 


 

Scientific Award #2

Targeting Microbiota 2021 KosticDr. Aleksander Kostic was also the winner of a scientifc award for his presentation about Reconstruction of Ancient Microbial Genomes from the Human Gut

Dr. Aleksandar Kostic along with his team have shown that industrial lifestyles are correlated with both a lower diversity in the gut microbiome and increased incidence of chronic diseases, such as obesity and autoimmune diseases. Examining our ancestral gut microbiome may provide insights into aspects of human–microbiome symbioses that have become altered in the present-day industrialized world. Reconstruction of metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) is an emerging approach to recover high-quality genomes and previously undescribed species-level genome bins (SGBs) from shotgun metagenomics data. Sequencing reads are de novo assembled into contiguous sequences (contigs), and contigs are binned to form draft genomes.

 


 

Scientific Award #3

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Award 1Prof. Siew Ng gave a presentation on The Promise of Microbiota Modulation during COVID-19 Pandemic, for which she was discerned a scientific award.

Siew Ng is Director of Microbiota I-Center (MagIC) of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. She and her team were the first to report the role of the gut microbiome in COVID-19 and they have developed a novel microbiome immunity consortia to hasten recovery and restore dysbiosis in COVID-19 and its sequele leading to global impact.

 


 

Animal Microbiota Symposium Scientific Award 

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Andres GomezDuring the session on Targeting Animal Microbiota Symposium, Dr. Andres Gomez was discerned a scientific award for his presentation on 

This study, in collaboration with Dr Krishona Martinson- University of Minnesota, was initially conducted to asses whether a reduced lignin (RL) version of alfalfa (8% less compared with the standard version (SV)) improved feed digestibility in horses. The data showed that the incorporation of RL alfalfa in horse diets increased apparent dry matter digestibility; but did not change mean fecal particle size, apparent crude protein digestibility, or mean retention time. When analyzing the fecal microbiome of the horses, when shifting from RL to SV of alfalfa, there were no apparent changes. However, we realized that each horse had a unique microbiome, which responded in an individual and significant manner to the content of lignin in alfalfa. These horse-unique patterns also correlated with individual outcomes in other feed digestibility traits, such as apparent dry matter digestibility and mean fecal particle size, all of which fluctuated differently in each horse. The study shows that horses have highly individualized microbiomes, which may determine individual responses to different types of feed. In other words, dietary interventions in horses trigger individualized microbiome responses, and hence the effects and benefit of some diets ands ingredients may be horse-specific. These results open the door to consider individualized nutrition strategies in companion and food animals.
