Manipulation of the Gut Microbiota for Metabolic Health
joint with Microbiome, Host Resistance and Disease
Organizer(s): Nathalie Delzenne and Liping ZhaoDate: March 04 - 08, 2018
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
The main objective of this Keystone Symposia conference is to evaluate the contribution of the gut microbiota to diseases characterized by alterations of host energy metabolism, and to highlight development of new therapeutic and nutritional approaches. Innovative models allow us to better elaborate the link between gut microbiota, the environment (including nutrition and xenobiotics – drugs, contaminants, additives) and host physiology, namely by focusing on specific metabolites produced by the gut microbes. As compared to previous meetings organized in the same field, additional metabolic disorders will be covered, including undernutrition and cachexia, disturbances of gut-muscle axis and cardiovascular dysfunction. Special attention will be brought to innovative tools to manipulate the gut microbiota, implicating both academic and industry research. The symposium will bring together a multidisciplinary audience to explore the vast amount of existing data (metagenomics and metabolomics dataset) that can be leveraged to elaborate novel tools to modulate the gut microbiota for host health.
