Nutrition and Microbiota - 6th Symposium GE-VD

This yearly symposium aims at highlighting the impact of nutrition on microbiota and the subsequent potential for prevention and treatment of diseases. Mounting evidence implicates the microbiota of the digestive tract in the development and progression of diseases. Thus, there is a growing interest to modulate the microbiota to improve health state.

The symposium will take place on Thursday, February 11, 2021, at the Auditorium Marcel Jenny of the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG), from 13 h to 17 h 15. Due to the sanitary situation the congress is only online in 2021.
