Frontiers in Human Microbiota Symbiotic Interactions

May 23-25, 2016 (Hong Kong)

Our host microbiota numbers in the trillions and colonizes not only the gut, skin, nose and other mucosal surfaces but potentially inhabits every tissue. The vital role played by our host microbiota in human physiology, disease, and the development of new therapeutics is the theme of our 2016 Bridging Biomedical Worlds conference. The conference entitled “Frontiers in Human Microbiota Symbiotic Interactions” will be held in Hong Kong, May 23-25, 2016 and is jointly organized by Fondation IPSEN, AAAS/Science and AAAS/Science Translational Medicine, and the University of Hong Kong. The meeting will cover a broad range of topics including: evolution of the host microbiota; microbes in the environment; host-microbiota interactions and the immune response; the nexus between diet, metabolism and the gut microbiota; overcoming the challenges of big data; and mining the host microbiota for new therapeutics.

Bridging Biomedical Worlds meeting series

As international collaborations in new and exciting research fields are forged between East and West, it seemed fitting for Fondation IPSEN and the American Association for the Advancement of Science to launch this new “Bridging Biomedical Worlds” conferences series. With these annual international conferences, to be held in different countries in Asia, we hope not only to facilitate the exchange of knowledge about important advances in key research areas but also to boost communication and cooperation among researchers, clinicians, and industry scientists from East and West.
