Targeting Commensal Flora to better shape protective immune responses for better disease prevention and therapy

10 - 12 June 2013, Les Pensières, Annecy (France)

The main objectives of the meeting will be to review the latest developments in our understanding of the role of gut microbiota on:

  • the shaping of the immune system (mucosal and systemic) and its homeostasis

  • the onset and progression of diseases: from inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, to allergy and cancer. We will also explore how the manipulation of the host microbiota composition and homeostasis can be best exploited to support novel therapeutic and preventive interventions.
