In-Person EventJan 25 - 26, 2018Hamburg, Hamburg, DE
Liver - Gut - Microbiome Interactions Workshop is organized by Falk Foundation e. V. and will be held during Jan 25 - 26, 2018 at Radisson Blu Hotel Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany.
In general, the relationship between the host and the microbiota is considered peaceful and even
mutualistic. Mammals have evolved indeed a complex mucosal immune system, composed of
epithelial cells, stromal cells and hematopoietic cells, including regulatory and effector T cells to
avoid inflammation in the intestine as a response to microbiota. Interestingly, the balance between
all these players does not only impact intestinal disease, but also liver disease. However, the cellular
and molecular mechanisms explaining the connection between the intestine, the microbiota and
the liver are unclear.
For this reason, the focus of the GASL Research Workshop is liver-gut-microbiome interactions.
During this workshop, outstanding international experts will discuss the most recent fi ndings
regarding this exciting topic. There will be an accompanying poster session on both days. The
workshop will be followed by the annual meeting of the German Association for the Study of the
Liver 2018, to which we would also like to extend an invitation to you.
The 34th Annual Meeting of the German Association for the Study of the Liver (GASL) will follow the Workshop.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
