The International Gut Microbiology Symposium will be the 13th joint symposium on gut microbiology organised by the Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen, and l'Institut
National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA), Theix, Clermont-Ferrand.
Held at P&J Live on the 13-15th June 2023, the 13th International Gut Microbiology Symposium aims to explore the role of the complex microbial ecosystem present in the digestive tract of humans and animals in maintaining host health. A particular focus will be on microbe-microbe and microbe-host interactions to advance our understanding of the role of these interactions in host welfare and health.
Sessions will focus on topics including colonisation resistance, spread of genes through environmental ecosystems, and successes in translating research into practice. Studies on all other topics related to the gut microbiota, including developing new approaches to study interactions between nutrition and gut microbial ecosystems as well as cross-talk between microorganisms and their host will also be welcomed.
The Rowett Institute, which was established over 100 years ago, played a major role in establishing the link between diet and health in the first half of the 20th of Century. Nowadays, the Institute is situated in the specially made medical campus, Foresterhill, which is one of the largest health campuses in Europe and plays a huge role in UK research in nutrition and human health.
The social programme will include a conference dinner and ceilidh in true Scottish style!
