‘The Interplay Between Gut Microbiome And Its Influencers'
Third edition

Orto Botanico, Via Foria 223, Napoli - October 18th 2019

“This third edition of the Round Table fo-cuses on the microbiomeas an emerging research area. Bacteria, viruses, archaea, and eukaryotic microbes dwell on and inside animal and human bodies, where they play a role in health, disease, and development. They contribute metabolic functions, protect against pathogens, educate the im-mune system, and through these basic functions, directly or indirectly affect most of our physiologic processes. The critical next stage, already underway, is to investigate further the functions of the microbiome, to understand the mechanisms underlying its activities, and to elucidate the inter-relationships among other living beings and the environment around them." - Learn more -

“Scientists and stakeholders need more talking for supporting advancement in Microbiome science and applications. Microbiome research should be more focused on practical issues that are important to improve human and environmental health, as well as our ability to exploit microbial resources. Scientists are willing to listen to industrial interests and needs in order to address the most currently relevant questions in the Microbiome field."
