The Microbiome as a Bridge Linking Antibiotics and Intestinal Function

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Valentina CaputiDr. Valentina Caputi, from the University of Arkansas, USA, will join the Targeting Microbiota 2021 Congress which will be held on October 20-22, 2021 at UNESCO Paris & Online. 

During the conference, Dr. Caputi will present "The Microbiome as a Bridge Linking Antibiotics and Intestinal Function" in session which will be  shared with Dr. Maria Cecilia and Dr. Joshua Lyte.

Summary of Talk: The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a complex multifunctional organ where commensals microbes and their related metabolites in the lumen modulate several neuronal, immune, and endocrine cellular systems in the gut wall, such as the enteric nervous system or outside the GI tract, such as the brain. The mechanisms behind this intimate crosstalk are beginning to be elucidated, and they are crucial not only for understanding the pathophysiology of functional intestinal diseases but also for identifying biomarkers that describe and help cure neurological disorders with GI comorbidities. This talk will explore the recent research on antibiotics as a tool to explore the gut microbiota-host neuro-endocrine-immune interactions and the relevance of these studies for the disorders of the microbiota-gut-brain axis.
