Symposium on gut microbiota and metabolic health

24 Nov 2016 @ 8:00 am - 25 Nov 2016 @ 6:00 pm CET

Novonorkdisk event

Microbial communities inhabiting the human gut play an important role in metabolic health, while also contributing to the development of metabolic diseases. Specific microbial species as well as characteristics of the total community may affect inflammation and metabolism in the host. Exploratory studies in humans as well as mechanistic studies in animals are used to elucidate these interrelations
We have attracted some of the most prominent scientists within a multitude of scientific disciplines including nutritional science, microbiology, clinical science and bioinformatics to provide insights into this highly relevant topic, and invite you for an exciting two-day event with several opportunities for scientific networking.
