In order to answer this critical question, a dedicated session will be organized during the 9th Annual Meeting of the International Society of Microbiota, taking place on 19-21 October 2022 at Sorbonne University in Paris, France and Online.

Targeting Microbiota 2022 will put together many complementary topics, controversies and clinical advances – from oral microbiota, to gut microbiota as well as vaginal microbiota.

Conference highlights.

Recent Innovations and Challenges Targeting Microbiota

This session will shed light on the recent strategies and innovations in the modulation of microbiota and microbial components. Among the hot topics that will be covered by many international speakers during this session are : Retinal disorders, depression, FMT, gene editing, host - microbiota interactions, microbiota in nutrition and weight loss, oral microbiota, vaginal microbiota and skin microbiota recent findings.

About the International Society of Microbiota (ISM):

ISM was born in 2013 after the transformation of the Task Force Mitochondria-Microbiota to a larger group gathering all actors and experts working in the field of microbiota. The idea is to bring a new level of thinking and understanding of microbiota science out of the classical existing point of view. The science of gut and microbiota is a dynamic field, with a huge evolution and affected by multi factors. ISM will bring this new dynamic point of view to accelerate the credible translation of this science into real benefit for the consumer. ISM also encourages the communication and interaction among researchers, physicians, nutritionists, industrials, food technology and strategic marketing managers through a global microbiota network, especially during its annual world meeting.
