Microbiota and future health
Domus Medica (preklinisk I og II): Store auditorium 9 SognsvannsveienOslo, Oslo, 0372 Norway , 26/09/2019 - 26/09/2019
Humans consist of more microbial cells than human cells and their genes form an integrated part of who we are. The human microbiome plays a crucial part in the maturation of the immune system, brain development and function, metabolism of food, synthesis of vitamins and more. It is crucial to preserve the microbiome we inherited from our ancestors and which has developed in symbiosis with us throughout evolution.
The conference will present the research frontier on gut microbiome and human health, and address how antibiotics and other microbial agents, as well as caesarean delivery, disrupt the human microbial ecosystem.
The overall aim is to ensure that this perspective is taken into account, in treatment, research and legislation.
