Report of the 5th ISM Berlin Microbiota Congress 2017

This congress allowed to have better understood that the microbiotas in our body sites can perform several and important roles that define the physiology of the host. Advances in the understanding of microbiota interaction with the host will irrevocably alter the view of mammalian metabolism and biology at any level. Indeed, the comprehension of microbiotas and their activities is essential for the generation of future personalized healthcare strategies. In this regard, it is not surprising to see a growing body of evidences to support the potential use of selected microbial clusters in the prevention and treatment of various human and animal diseases. 

At the end of the conference, the scientific awarded three scientists for their strategic research:

Prof. Paul Forsythe
