The microbial communities that reside in the human gut and their impact on human health are one of the most exciting new areas of research today. To address the most recent advances in this rapidly developing field, scientists from all over the world will come together at the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit in Miami, Florida, USA, on March 8-9, 2014
The press conference will inform about factors that can lead to an unbalanced microbiota and will address the consequences of a disturbed microbiota, as well as the way in which diet and nutrition can help (including the use of probiotics and prebiotics). A prospective look at non-bacterial microbes in the gut will also be offered. Topics and speakers include:
The latest gut microbiota research: key topics at the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit 2014
Speaker: Prof. Gail Hecht, USA
Gas and irritable bowel syndrome: what role does the gut microbiota play?
Speaker: Prof. Giovanni Barbara, Italy
How diet and nutrition can help (probiotics and prebiotics at all stages of life)
Speaker: Prof. Francisco Guarner, Spain
Non-bacterial microbes in the gut: what are they, how do we characterize them, and what do they do?
Speaker: Prof. Gary Wu, USA
“Gut Microbes – Importance in Health and Disease”: the theme of the World Gastroenterology Organisation”s upcoming World Digestive Health Day 2014 Speaker: Prof. Francisco Guarner, Spain
