Welcome to Targeting Microbiota 2020 Virtual Congress

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 Virtually, on October 21-22, 2021. Targeting Microbiota 2021 Congress is not a webinar. All registered attendees will have access to the platform when they wish and at any time.

For more information: Practical Information & FAQ

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

  • Microbiota 2021: Recent Advances & Perspectives
  • Microbiota Dysbiosis in the Pathogenesis of COVID-19
  • 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

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.
