Targeting Microbiota 2020 will be a Virtual and in-Person Congress

We have been closely following updates and evolving guidance from local, national and global agencies for COVID-19. There is still much uncertainty around the coronavirus, and how long our communities may be impacted by the pandemic, but it seems certain that decisions about how we work, travel and gather together will continue to be influenced for weeks and months still to come. Today we have made the decision to combine in-person and Virtual conference.


If you cannot attend in-person or virtual due to the restriction and time zone difference, you can access on-demand videos to this entire event, including synced audio/video and slides.

All posters will be in PDF format. You can visit them, upload and interact directly with the poster presenter. You can also exchange with speakers via direct or private exchange during the conference.

We will keep you informed of any new decision.

The 2nd edition of skin microbiota symposium concluded with success

Skin Microbiota Concluding remarks2The second edition of Skin Microbiota Symposium held at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris on June 15, 2017.

During this symposium, many hot topics were discussed and high international speakers presented their recent scientific data. The symposium was introduced by Dr Marvin Edeas from the Université Paris Descartes, Hôpital Cochin, Paris and was divided in four sessions:

  • Skin Microbiota 2017: Recent Advances & Perspectives
  • Skin Microbiota 2017 – Practical Issues
  • Human Skin Microbiota & Skin Pathologies
  • Presentation of academic and industrial innovations

The presentations were very carefully selected and provided a good overview about state-of-the-art topics and new products in the field of skin microbiota research. The meeting was also an excellent opportunity for networking with 65 attendees coming from international universities and industries.

As concluding remarks, more research is needed, in particular about metabolites which can be used as therapeutics or in skin care products.
