Welcome to Targeting Microbiota 2019

Pr. Peter Konturek

On behalf of the International Society of Microbiota, we are pleased to inform you that the 7th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota will be organized in Park Inn Hotel - Krakow, Poland, on October 10 - 11, 2019.

During those days, lots of oral and poster presentations will be introduced and will cover many hot topics:

  • Microbiota 2019: Recent Advances & Perspectives
  • Microbiota Metabolites and Metabolome: Challenges & Perspectives
  • Challenges of microbiota-host cross-talk understanding and intestinal microbiome signaling to extraintestinal organs
  • Microbiota & medicine of tomorrow: Development of effective therapeutic strategies to manipulate the gut microbiota
  • New Session dedicated to Built Environment Microbiome
  • Special Workshop dedicated to Skin microbiota 2019: From basics to applied cosmetics and skin care
    • The first part is Skin Microbiota : Recent advances and perspectives
    • The second part are strategies to modulate and affect skin microbiota in health and diseases

I do believe that this would be the best future strategy for the 7th World Congress of Targeting Microbiota in 2019: strong communication between basic, pre-clinical scientists and clinicians.

Microbiota & Medicine of Tomorrow: The Revolution

The chairman of the scientific committee of the International Society of Microbiota (ISM), Prof. Marvin Edeas (Institut Cochin, Université Paris Descartes, France), explained the new topics of the 7th edition of Targeting Microbiota. The Microbiota and microbiome are transforming deeply our understanding of Medicine of tomorrow. It is really a revolution which allows us to rethink and redesign our strategies about the way we will prevent and treat many diseases and pathologies. 

Among the strategic questions which will be debated:

 - How can all big data generated by microbiota sequencing or the metabolome be used?

- Can we speak about Artificial Intelligence and microbiota medicine?

Other topics which are important to discuss with the scientific committee cover a lot of tests and devices in the market (whose target is the general public) to collect, sequence and analyse human (and animal) Microbiota. They systematically propose  the utilization of huge amount of probiotics and products.
 

So, I hope to meet you at the next meeting to capture moments of conviviality and scientific inspiration and to study the various aspects of the microbiota with the best scientists we have in the world .

Krakow is a unique place for visitors which offers the most convenient and pleasant settings for international congresses, and which has the oldest and largest academic centres of Poland. The city is famous for its historical old town (UNESCO World Heritage Site) along with the Wawel castle and Kazimierz district. Krakow can be easily reached by plane, train or car.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Our warmest regards.
