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

Microbiota & Medicine of Tomorrow - The Revolution: Comments by Prof. Marvin Edeas

The chairman of the scientific committee of the International Society of Microbiota (ISM), Prof. Marvin Edeas (Institut Cochin, Université Paris Descartes, France), explained the new topics of the 7th edition of Targeting Microbiota. The Microbiota and microbiome transforming deeply our understanding of Medicine of tomorrow. It is really a revolution which allow us to re-think and re-design our strategies about the way we will prevent and treat many diseases and pathologies. 

Among the strategic questions which will debated:

 - how all big data generated by microbiota sequencing can be used?

- Can we talk about Artificial Intelligence and microbiota medicine?

Other topics which are important to discuss with the scientific committee are the many tests and devices in the market (which target the general public) to collect, sequence and analyse human (and animals) Microbiota. They propose systematically the utilisation of huge amount of probiotics and products.


Prof. Peter C. Konturek - President of ISM will highlight many questions during the 7th edition of Targeting Microbiota 2019.


  • Can we modulate the quality and diversity of human microbiota?
  • How to induce durable beneficial changes in gut microbiota?
  • Where is the red line of the gut microbiota manipulation?
  • What are the strategic mediators of gut microbiota?
  • How to understand better the role of bacterial metabolites?
  • What is the perfect microbiota "signature" and how to use it as a biomarker to "predict" and/or treat many diseases?
  • What is the influence of gut microbiota on the development and progression of chronic diseases?
