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. 


Individual differences in the microbiome and metabolome during circadian misalignment and sleep restriction

Kenneth P. Wright Microbiota 2018 Speakers

Prof. Kenneth Wright from the University of Colorado Boulder, USA will give a short oral presentation on Individual differences in the microbiome and metabolome during circadian misalignment and sleep restriction: associations with the ability to maintain wakefulness during 6th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2018 Congress which will be held in Porto,  on October 28-30, 2018.

Summary of presentation: "Circadian and sleep disruption are common in modern society with round the clock work operations in shift-workers and due to many people sleeping less than the recommended amount of hours each night.  Circadian misalignment—behaviors such as wakefulness-sleep and energy intake-fasting that occur at inappropriate internal biological times—and sleep loss are ideal conditions under which to study the microbiota-gut-brain axis as circadian misalignment and sleep loss are associated with gastrointestinal distress, metabolic dysregulation, and cognitive impairment. Findings from a study aimed to determine the influence of circadian and sleep disruption on 1) the microbiota-gut-brain axis, 2) the stability of individual differences in the microbiome, the microbiome metabolome, and human host physiology/behavior, and 3) associations between alterations in microbiome metabolome with an objective measure of alertness will be presented."
