Feeding the microbiota: 5th Symposium GE-VD

The 5e Symposium GE-VD Feeding the microbiota will take place on the 6th of February 2020, from 1pm to 5.30 pm at the Jenny Auditorium.

Context

Recent studies suggest that the gut microbiota changes with age and could be involved in age-associated diseases and conditions. It is therefore tempting to hypothesize that nutrition could modulate the gut microbiota, subsequently influence the immune system and finally impact on age-associated diseases and conditions.
