Targeting Microbiota 2020 postponed to 2021

In response to the critical situation and evolution of the COVID-19, the Organizing Committee and the President of Targeting Microbiota 2020 (conference initially scheduled on Oct 22-23, 2020) feel that it is preferable to postpone the congress to the coming year 2021 in an effort to contribute to the containment of the pandemic. 
Targeting Microbiota 2021 will be held on October 21-22, 2021 at UNESCO in Paris, France.
We will announce the details as soon as the planning of the 2021 meeting has been completed.  
Thank you for your understanding of this exceptional situation.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2021 edition of the 8th World Congress Targeting Microbiota. 
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any further information.

Modulating the microbiota of the hospital environment by probiotic cleaning: impact on infections and antimicrobial resistance

ELISABETTA CASELLI Targeting Microbiota 2019 v1During the 7th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota scheduled on October 10-11, 2019 at the ParkInn Hotel - Krakow, Poland, the Scientific commitee will dedicate a full session related to the Built Environment Microbiome.

Dr. Elisabetta Caselli from the University of Ferrara, Italy will give a presentation entitled "Modulating the microbiota of the hospital environment by probiotic cleaning: impact on infections and antimicrobial resistance".

Dr. Caselli summarizes: "Healthcare–associated infections (HAIs) are a global concern, whose major causes include the persistent microbial contamination of the hospital environment, and the growing antimicrobial-resistance (AMR) of HAI-associated microbes.

The control of contamination has been so far addressed by the use of chemical-based sanitation procedures, which however do not prevent recontamination and can select resistant microbes.

By contrast, a microbial-based sanitation system, inspired by the microbiome balance principles, was shown to induce remodulation of hospital microbiota, obtaining a stable control of bioburden and AMR, associated to a significant reduction of HAIs."
