Targeting Microbiota 2020 will be a Virtual Congress

The organizing committees decided to organize the 8th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota as Virtual Meeting.

Targeting Microbiota 2020 Congress is not a webinar. All registered attendees will have access to the platform when they wish and at any time.

Due to restriction and time zone difference, a pre-recorded contribution can be separately viewed online from the date of the conference, October 22, 2020, until November 23rd, via the use of access code. For more info: Frequently Asked Questions.

Honor thy lodgers? - Interactions between the Built Environment Microbiome and the Human Microbiome

Markus Egert Targeting Microbiota 2018Prof. Markus Egert from Furtwangen University, Germany will talk about "Honor thy lodgers? - Interactions between the Built Environment Microbiome and the Human Microbiome" during the Targeting Microbiota 2018 Congress, which will be held in Porto, in October 28-30, 2018.

Summary of presentation: The Built Environment (BE) represents all man-made structures, features, and facilities in which people live, work, recreate and travel. The BE microbiome comprises thousands of microbial species, originating from soil, air, water, food, animals and in particular the human inhabitants themselves. While it is safe to assume that the BE microbiome is of great importance for human health, especially functional insight is lacking here. However, a deeper understanding of the functional interactions between the BE microbiome and the human microbiome is needed in order to develop health-promoting microbial management strategies for the BE, which should comprise antimicrobial and probiotic measures in a well-balanced manner.
