Targeting Microbiota 2020 will be a Virtual and in-Person Conference

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.

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."
