Discover the 4th symposium organized by Nutrition and Microbiota on : Cancer Immunity and Microbiota which will be held on the 7th of February 2019 at Geneva University Hospitals (HUG). This yearly symposium aims at highlighting the impact of nutrition on microbiota and the subsequent potential for prevention and treatment of diseases. Conference Description: This special afternoon will focus on the impact of gut microbiota on health and disease. It aims to inform a wide audience (doctors, nutritionists, biologists, bio-informaticians, students, nurses, private companies) about the innovations in the field and the impact of nutrition on the microbiota. A better understanding of the association between nutrition and gut microbiota could open up new therapeutic options for chronic diseases such as cancer. Recent studies implicate the microbiota of the digestive tract in the development and progression of diseases. Thus, there is a growing interest to modulate the microbiota to improve health state. It is recognized that the microbiota of each person is different. Part of these differences is related to food intake. Although the impact of each food component on microbiota is yet unclear, it opens new areas of research and potential treatment for diseases. It suggests that diseases may be modulated by nutrition and also paves the way for personalized medicine. If you are interested in this event please register for this symposium on gut microbiota for free. Organizers L. Genton, J. Schrenzel Scientific committee L. Genton, G. Greub, F. Pralong, J.
