The Human Microbiota & Brain Diseases - 4th Edition

Therapeutic targets

The past two years have seen an exponential increase of lay and scientific publications on the effects of the trillions small guests that each of us more or less willingly hosts in the most secluded and intimate folds and holes of our body. Reports have been published on the association of some bacterial strains in the guts on human physiology and somatic and brain diseases. Reports have multiplied of animal experiments showing that some natural features can be transferred from one animal to another by gut bacteria transfer. It is increasingly clear that a number of environmental events can affect the bacterial composition of gut flora, that the animals with the modified version of the gut flora acquire specific physical and behavioral features, and that such features can be transferred to nonexposed animals by gut bacteria transfer.

The 4th edition of this conference will take place on Friday, May 7, 2021 from 8 h to 19 h 15 as a fully online videoconference. It aims to update physicians and scientists on the latest discoveries on the role of the gut microbiota in neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases, and to identify leads for microbiota-based interventions for brain diseases.
