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.

Welcome to Targeting Microbiota 2020

October 21-23, 2020. 


Exploring the role of gut dysbiosis in neuroinflammation and hypertension

Dave Durgan Microbiota 2018 updProf. David Durgan from  Baylor College of Medicine, USA will give a strategic presentation during the 6th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2018 about "Exploring the role of gut dysbiosis in neuroinflammation and hypertension" during the congress.

According to Prof. Durgan: "Hypertension is one of the most prevalent risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease. We have demonstrated that multiple models of hypertension exhibit gut dysbiosis, and that dysbiosis plays a causal role in the development of hypertension. We have found that this involves neuroinflammation, and are currently examining a potential microbiota-gut-brain axis involved in blood pressure regulation. Our studies demonstrate that treatments to prevent or reverse gut dysbiosis may be valuable in the treatment of hypertension."
