Welcome to Targeting Microbiota 2018

On behalf of the members of the scientific committee and the President of ISM, we are pleased to inform you that the 6th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota will be organized in Milano, Italy on October 16-17, 2018. All the practical information will be communicated soon.

During both days, many oral and poster communications will be presented and will cover many hot topics:

• Microbiota 2018: Recent Advances & Perspectives

• Challenges of microbiota sequencing and analyzing: How to interpret the results?

• Challenges of microbiota-host cross-talk understanding and intestinal microbiome signaling to extraintestinal organs

• Microbiota & medicine of tomorrow: Development of effective therapeutic strategies to manipulate the gut microbiota


During this two-day conference, we will try to answer many questions, among them:

• Can we modulate the quality and diversity of human microbiota?

• How to induce durable beneficial changes in gut microbiota?

• Where is the red line of the gut microbiota manipulation? • What are the strategic mediators of gut microbiota?

• How to understand better the role of bacterial metabolites?

• What is the perfect microbiota "signature" and how to use it as a biomarker to "predict" and/or treat many diseases?


We very much look forward to seeing you in Milano for this exciting event
