Welcome to Targeting Microbiota 2020

Dear colleagues,

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 in Paris, France, on October 21-23, 2020.

During both days, many oral and poster communications will be presented and will cover many hot topics:

  • Microbiota 2020: Recent Advances & Perspectives
  • Challenges of microbiota sequencing and analyzing: How to manage the Big Data of sequencing?
  • Challenges of microbiota-host cross-talk understanding and intestinal microbiome signaling to extraintestinal organs
  • Food-microbiota interactions
  • Microbiota & medicine of tomorrow: Development of effective therapeutic strategies to manipulate the gut microbiota
  • Safety aspects of microbiota based therapies

During Targeting Microbiota 2020, we will try to answer many questions, among them:

  • Can we modulate the quality and diversity of human microbiota?
  • How to induce durable beneficial changes in gut microbiota?
  • Where is the red line of the gut microbiota manipulation?
  • What are the strategic mediators of gut microbiota?
  • How to understand better the role of bacterial metabolites?
  • What is the perfect microbiota "signature" and how to use it as a biomarker to "predict" and/or treat many diseases?
  • What is the influence of gut microbiota on the development and progression of chronic diseases?

I do believe that this would be the best future strategy for the 8th World Congress of Targeting Microbiota in 2020: a strong communication between basic, pre-clinical scientists and clinicians.

Microbiota & Medicine of Tomorrow: The Revolution

The scientific committee of the International Society of Microbiota (ISM) and in particular Prof. Marvin Edeas (Institut Cochin, Université Paris Descartes, France), founder, wish to highlight: "...there is a deep transformation in our current medicine where big data and Artificial Intelligence will play a strategic role in the medicine of tomorrow. How all big data generated by microbiota sequencing can be used? Can we talk about Artificial Intelligence and microbiota medicine? We wish to open the door for this kind of discussion..."

So, I hope to meet you at the next meeting in order to capture moments of conviviality and scientific inspirations by the many and best scientists we have in the world studying the various aspects of the microbiota.

Paris is a unique place for visitors and offers the most convenient and pleasant setting for international congresses, and can be easily reached by plane, train or car.

Looking forward to seeing you soon, our warmest regards.
