2014 ENGIHR Conference: The Gut Microbiota Throughout Life

Max Rubner-Insitut, Karlsruhe, Germany. September 24th-26th

Aim: This final conference of the ENGIHR Networking Programme will focus on the composition and function of the gut microbiota throughout life. Sessions will focus on the establishment of the gut microbiota in early life, the maintenance and stability of the gut microbiota during adulthood, and changes in the gut microbiota during ageing.
