12th INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON GUT MICROBIOLOGY - 13-15 OCT 2021

The 12th edition of the symposium will focus on the understanding of the role of human and animal microbial digestive ecosytems in host metabolism, welfare and health. Studies on other topics are also encouraged, such as the interplay between gut microorganisms and environment, as well as cross-talk between microorganisms and their host. Studies aiming at developing new approaches to study gut microbial ecosystems in interaction with the diet, the host and the environment will also be highly appreciated.


History of the symposium

The symposium was first jointly organised in 1997 by INRA (France) and the Rowett Institute (Scotland), two European Institutes well-known for their research on microbial digestive ecosystems. Because of its initial success, it was then alternatively organised in Clermont-Ferrand (France) and in Aberdeen (Scotland) every two years. The last meetings in Clermont-Ferrand in 2016 and Aberdeen in 2018 gathered more than 300 attendees from more than 30 countries.
