Our body has millions of microbes, referred to generally as our microbiome or microbiota. More than 99% of “our” genetic information comes from information contained in the millions of microbes that inhabit our bodies. Understanding human-microbiome and how it can be modulated is a challenge and a great opportunity as it exerts an enormous influence on our health.
With the participation of leading investigators in human microbiome research, “The 2018 Barcelona Debates on the Human Microbiome. From Microbes to Medicines” will discuss the more recent studies on the complex human-microbiome relationship, how the microbiome can influence in improving the health and well-being and explore future research areas on this promising field.
Organized by IrsiCaixa and with the collaboration of the most prominent Catalan and Spanish institutions working in this area, the 2-day meeting brings together international leading-edge and has become a meeting of reference, this year celebrating its fourth edition.
