Session Description: Humans carry a vast number of bacteria and other microbiota species from birth, and you may be more bacteria than you are you. An increasing importance of microbiota in human health and diseases has been recognized. Whatever your research subjects are, chances are that they may be influenced by the microbiota. This symposium will discuss the impact of gut microbiota on diseases ranging from neurodegeneration to diabetes, from the liver to the heart, and from the immune cells to the bone.
