MicrobiotaMi 2018 a Porte Aperte (FREE) – 5 Novembre 2018
iscrizioni gratuite alla prima giornata del 5 Novembre (posti limitati) – REGISTRAZIONE CHIUSA
This international event is organized as the final event within the European MSCA-ETN project TOLLerant (www.tollerant.eu) and it will focus on molecular aspects of microbiota-host interaction in health and disease.
The aim of this International meeting is to focus on the molecular mechanisms and interactions in health and disease conditions beyond infection, including sensitization, gut-brain communication, aging, cancer, chronic inflammation and autoimmunity.
Motivation for the selection of this topic is that despite a huge increase in genomic, proteomic and metabolomics data that allowed to relate microbiota composition to health and disease of different organs, the molecular mechanisms by which bacteria, viruses and fungi communicate with the host organism remain largely unknown.
In this context the key role is played by the Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs), including Toll-like Receptors (TLRs) but also intracellular NLRs and other receptors.
YOUNG RESEARCHERS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO PRESENT THEIR WORK AS FLASH/ORAL COMMUNICATION OR POSTER PRESENTATION.
