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. 


Link between microbiota & visceral pain: role of bioactive lipids

Microbiota 2018 Speaker Cenac Nicolas

Dr. Nicolas Cenac from Inserm, France will join the 6th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2018 Congress and give presentation about "Link between microbiota & visceral pain: role of bioactive lipids".

"Impairment in the composition and diversity of this microbiota have been observed in pathologies of digestive tract such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). In order to study the impact of bacteria on the most deleterious IBS symptoms, visceral pain, we used several approaches in mass spectrometry to analyze bacterial lipids. We highlighted the production by bacteria of lipopeptides able to cross the intestinal barrier to regulate sensory neurons. In addition, we characterized several long chain fatty acid (LCFA) modifying the production of pro-algesic molecules by intestinal epithelial cells. These works allowed us to demonstrate that bacteria from the microbiota, by secreting lipopeptides and LCFAs, could signal directly or via the epithelium to sensory neurons."
