Welcome to Targeting Microbiota 2021


On behalf of the International Society of Microbiota, we announce that Targeting Microbiota will be held as an Interactive Online Meeting, on October 20-22 2021. During two days, we will dedicate four time periods to interactive discussions & networking. Based on Middle European Time we will have two time periods for “Live Session” on each day of the congress: one time period will be in the middle of the day and the other at the end of the day.

International Space Station and hospital environments: Composition and function of microbiomes in confined built environments

Christine Moissl Eichinger Targeting Microbiota 2019
During the 7th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota scheduled on October 10-11, 2019 at the Park Inn Hotel - Krakow, Poland, the Scientific commitee will dedicate a full session related to the Built Environment Microbiome.
Prof. Christine Moissl-Eichinger from Medical University Graz, Austria will present the research work entitled "International Space Station and hospital environments: Composition and function of microbiomes in confined built environments".
Prof. Moissl-Eichinger highlights: "Indoor environments, where people spend most of their time, are characterized by a specific microbial community, the indoor microbiome. Most indoor environments are connected to the natural environment, but some habitats are more confined: intensive care units, operating rooms, cleanrooms and the international space station (ISS) are extraordinary living and working areas for humans, with a limited exchange with the environment. All of these man-made confined habitats are microbiologically monitored and controlled. However, these measures might apply constant selective pressures, which support microbes with resistance capacities against chemical and physical stresses and thus might facilitate the rise of survival specialists and multi-resistant strains. In this talk, special characteristics of confined indoor microbiomes will be highlighted, and their specific functions and the consequences thereof will be discussed."
