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.

Fecal preservation by freeze-drying: applications and perspectives

Julie Reygner Targeting Microbiota 2019

Dr. Julie Reygner from Université Paris Descartes - Faculté de Pharmacie, France will join in the Congress and will present her work entitled "Fecal preservation by freeze-drying: applications and perspectives" during the congress.

Short summary: Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has now evolved into an efficient therapeutic for the management of recurrent Clostridium difficile infections (rCDIs) with an efficient cure rate reaching 85-95%. We have previously shown that a freeze-dried formulation allowed to conserve FMT preparation over 12 months improving standardization of the stool preparation procedures, process time and thus facilitating patient access to this treatment. The new goal is to improve of the selection of donors, beyond safety of stool samples, in order to develop a rational selection of FMT donor according to the pathology to be treated.

Dr. Reygner is also Best Shor oral presentation award winner of last year and presented short oral presentation "A new freeze-dried formulation to conserve stools over 12 months for fecal transplantation".

This year, Dr. Reygner join participate as Major speaker and will elobrate more about her study on Fecal preservation, ecal transplantation.
