Welcome to MicrobiotaMi 2018!
Francesco Peri, University of Milano-Bicocca
This international event will be organized as the final event within the European MSCA-ETN project TOLLerant (www.tollerant.eu) and it will focus on molecular aspects of microbiota-host interaction in health and disease.
The aim of this International meeting is to focus on the molecular mechanisms and interactions in health and disease conditions, including nutritional aspects, sensitization, gut-brain communication, aging, cancer, chronic inflammation, autoimmunity.
In this context the key role is played by the Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs), including Toll-like Receptors (TLRs) but also intracellular NLRs and other receptors.
We anticipate participation in this meeting by researchers from academia as well as the biotech and pharma industry who are interested in the molecular interactions between microbiota and host cells in health and disease and who would like to be on top of this field.
We very much hope you will be able to join us for this exciting meeting in a stimulating multi- and interdisciplinary environment in the intercultural, young, creative fascinating ambience of Milano.
