It is now well recognized that the microbiota plays an important role in the development, immunity and physiology of its mammalian host. Considerable progress has been made in identifying microbes and microbial metabolites that modulate host functions, maintain health or drive pathology. This knowledge has been derived from the characterization of microbiota during development and adult life, during health and disease, using animal and mechanical models to decipher the complex interactions between microbes and host, and to infer causal relationships. The aim of this meeting is to bring together the specialists of the field to discuss novel insights into the microbiota-host mutualism and parasitism, and focus on the new models and approaches to explore this relationship. In the near future, these advances will lead to the development of preventive and therapeutic strategies based on microbiota manipulation or the use of microbial metabolites, and allow the microbiota to become a key diagnostic component in precision medicine.


*INFRAFRONTIER -  https://www.infrafrontier.eu
INFRAFRONTIER is the European Research Infrastructure for phenotyping and archiving of model mammalian genomes. The INFRAFRONTIER Research Infrastructure provides access to first-class tools and data for biomedical research, and thereby contributes to improving the understanding of gene function in human health and disease using the mouse model. The core services of INFRAFRONTIER comprise the systemic phenotyping of mouse mutants in the participating mouse clinics, and the archiving and distribution of mouse mutant lines by the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA). In addition, INFRAFRONTIER provides specialised services such as the generation of germ-free mice, and training in state of the art cryopreservation and phenotyping technologies.
Financial support is provided by the INFRAFRONTIER2020 and IPAD-MD projects INFRAFRONTIER2020 received funding from European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under Grant Agreement number 730879
