The 9th ISM Annual Meeting will take place from the 19th to the 21st of October at Sorbonne University in Paris, France and Online. More than 300 participants from 25 different countries will be attending in person and online, and more than 86 communications will be presented this year.
Dr. Marvin Edeas, Founder & Chairman of ISM, Institut Cochin, INSERM, University of Paris, France, stated: “After 2 years, we will be back in person in Paris, with more diversity of topics which may explain the complexity of our microbiota”.
Dr. Edeas thinks that we are still at the beginning in our exploration and we probably need to desiccate more the mechanism behind microbiota efficacy such as: extracellular vesicles and exosomes and their impact on microbiota communication and microbiota-host relationship, along with their potential involvement in disease. Further exploration of the role of microbiota and its metabolites on iron metabolism should be highlighted.
Topics which Dr. Edeas thinks can be strongly explored in the future are:
About the International Society of Microbiota (ISM):
ISM was born in 2013 after the transformation of the Task Force Mitochondria-Microbiota to a larger group gathering all actors and experts working in the field of microbiota. The idea is to bring a new level of thinking and understanding of microbiota science out of the classical existing point of view. The science of gut and microbiota is a dynamic field, with a huge evolution and affected by multi factors. ISM will bring this new dynamic point of view to accelerate the credible translation of this science into real benefit for the consumer. ISM also encourages the communication and interaction among researchers, physicians, nutritionists, industrials, food technology and strategic marketing managers through a global microbiota network, especially during its annual world meeting.
