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.

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."
