The latest advancements on the microbiota, microbiota-based therapy, and the new microbiome will be debated during Targeting Microbiota 2023 on October 18-19 at Isola di San Servolo - Centro Soggiorno, Venice.

The 10th World Congress on Targeting Microbiota 2023 will be locally organized by Prof. Maria Cecilia Giron from the University of Padova, Pharmacology Section, Department of Pharmaceutical & Pharmacological Sciences.


Targeting Microbiota 2023: Towards Unraveling the Future of Medicine

A detailed overview on the role of microbiota health and in disease will be presented. The latest updates on microbiota evaluation will also be introduced and the novel sources of microbiota will not be neglected. Microbiota innovations will also be vastly addressed.

The important progress in microbiota research will be covered during Targeting Microbiota 2023:

  • Microbiota in Diseases:  How to Move from Association to Causation?
  • Microbial Metabolomics: The Hot Target
  • Novel Advances in Microbiota Assessment
  • Targeting Microbiota for Longevity – What We know & What We Expect?
  • New Sources of Microbiota: A potential revolution?
  • Microbiota & Space: Future Medicine
  • Microbiota & The Environment: A Bidirectional Relationship
  • Microbiota: The Novel Preventive Target
  • Microbiota-Based Therapy: The Current Status & Innovations


10 Minutes to Convince: Dedicated to Industry

This annual meeting the scientific committee will dedicate a session for microbiota industries to share their innovations with international professionals, academics, and students in 10 minutes.
