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

President Targeting Microbiota 2020Dear 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 at UNESCO World Heritage Centre - Paris, France, on
October 21-23, 2020. 


Recent advances on the relation between the microbiome-gut-brain axis and the neurodegenerative diseases

Microbiota 2018 Speakers Maria Cecilia GironMaria Cecilia Giron from University of Padova, Italy will talk about "Recent advances on the relation between the microbiome-gut-brain axis and the neurodegenerative diseases" during the  6th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2018 Congress.


"In the last decade, emerging evidence has revealed the presence of an intense dialogue between the brain and the gastrointestinal system, the so-called brain-gut axis. Disruption of this complex relationship has been shown to be associated to the pathogenesis of several disorders, ranging from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), to depression, anxiety, dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

We have demonstrated that gut dysbiosis affects functional and structural integrity of the enteric nervous system. We are currently examining a potential microbiota-gut-brain axis involved in neuroplasticity and neurodegeneration. Deciphering the interactive dialogue that occurs between microorganisms in the gut and the activity of the immune system regulated by Toll-like receptors is crucial for the discovery and the development of compounds such as pharma- and nutraceuticals (including syn-, pre- and probiotics), critical for preserving or restoring homeostasis in the gut as well as in the central nervous system."
