General Information

This meeting will update current knowledge of how various microbiomes (oral, gut, lung, non-bacterial etc.) communicate with the host and the factors that influence these interactions. The programme will discuss the new developments enabled by metagenomics, metabolomics and other technologies. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in discussions on how to apply recent discoveries to disease processes, health restoration and maintenance.

This year’s meeting will also include sessions on the gut-brain access and the influence of the microbiome on cancer. As in previous years, the warm welcome given to students and the open friendly atmosphere provide attendees with an enjoyable conference.

We welcome abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting, for both oral and poster presentations. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.

Deadline for submissions: 4th September
