Welcome to Targeting Microbiota 2021

Dear colleagues,

We wish you and your family are going well in this hard moments of our life. 
On behalf of the International Society of Microbiota, we are pleased to inform you that the 8th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota will be organized on October 20-22, 2021 in Paris at the UNESCO.  The meeting will be a hybrid conference: in person and virtually. The final decision about the format will be next July. We keep our optimism in this particular moments.

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

End of Targeting Microbiota 2021


I do believe that this would be the best future strategy for the 8th World Congress of Targeting Microbiota in 2021: a strong communication between basic, pre-clinical scientists and clinicians.

If you wish to present your studies and research, please send us a short summary. We are open to all your suggestions for the program of Targeting Microbiota 2021.

So, I hope to meet you at the next meeting in order to capture moments of conviviality and scientific inspirations by the many and best scientists we have in the world studying the various aspects of the microbiota.

All our warmest regards.
