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.

Metabolic and Metagenomic Consequences of E. coli Infections

Matteo SERINO Targeting Microbiota 2019The Scientific Committee of Targeting Microbiota 2019 Congress invited Dr. Matteo Serino from Inserm and Digestive Health Research Institute, France.

Dr. Serino will give a presentation entitled "Metabolic and Metagenomic Consequences of E. coli Infections".

Summary of Presentation: A dietary fat enrichment is among the strongest factors impacting on gut microbiota on a both structural and functional level, as well known as inducer of metabolic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and hepatopathology. Interestingly, an alimentary switch towards the high-fat content has been also shown  capable of favouring the colonisation of the intestine by enterobacteria. Among the latters are pro-inflammatory and/or genotoxic E. coli strains. The metabolic consequences of the infections by these bacteria in mice will be discussed in relation to a lean vs. an obese/diabetic host, together with changes in the gut microbiota and microbiome.
