CANCELLED: Charlotte Brives (Centre Emile Durkheim, Bordeaux), The promises of phage therapy

This event is cancelled.   Charlotte Brives (Centre Emile Durkheim, Sciences Po Bordeaux, France)   The promises of phage therapy, or why phages are such an interesting object for anthropologists.   Abstract Phage therapy, the use of bacteriophage viruses to treat human bacterial infections, is a century-old practice developed in 1917 by Félix d’Hérelle. After… Read more »

Raphael Enaud (Bordeaux University Hospital), Microbiota and cystic fibrosis: a new era?

Raphael Enaud (MD-PhD student) & Laurence Delhaes (MD-PhD) Abstract Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common serious genetic disease in Caucasian population. Patient management has improved considerably in recent years. Pulmonary transplantation and protein therapeutics have changed the face of the disease. Before the first lung transplant, the CF disease prognosis was essentially conditioned by… Read more »

Nadine Cerf-Bensussan, Host-microbiota interactions across the gut immune system: an evolutionary trade-off

Nadine Cerf-Bensussan, “Host-microbiota interactions across the gut immune system: an evolutionary trade-off” Abstract To cope with the complex microbial community that settles in the distal part of our intestine after birth, hosts have evolved a spectrum of complementary innate and adaptive immune mechanisms. This highly dynamic barrier is programmed ante-natally but fully develops only after… Read more »

Silvia Bulgheresi (University of Vienna), Dressed to Cooperate – Marine Nematode-Bacterium Symbioses

Silvia Bulgheresi (University of Vienna, Austria, Department of Ecogenomics & Systems Biology) Abstract: Up to now, the study of bacterial reproduction focused on model organisms. On the other hand, cell biological research on environmental bacteria – including those thriving on animal surfaces – are scarce. Marine nematodes engage in binary associations with chemosynthetic Gammaproteobacteria. The… Read more »

Thomas Bosch (Kiel), The Holobiont Imperative: Novel Perspectives for Biology and Medicine

Thomas Bosch (Zoologisches Institut, University of Kiel, Germany; Head of DFG project “Origin and Function of Metaorganisms”) Abstract: For a long time, the main purpose of host-associated microbiology was to study pathogenic bacteria and infectious disease; the potential benefit of good bacteria remained unrecognized. In the last 10 years, biology has made revolutionary advances from… Read more »
