Final AD-gut Annual Meeting 2020

Initially, our final AD-gut Annual Meeting 2020 was planned to take place in Bern, but unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, we had to meet remotely.

Despite the circumstances, we sincerely would like to warmly thank all the AD-gut’s partners as well as the EC officers for having attended the final meeting of the project and for all the hard work performed during those last 4 years!!!

Our AD-gut Annual Meeting 2018 successfully took place at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz from October 11th to 12th 2018. A Workshop focused on Microbiome followed our Annual Meeting on the second day, on October 12th 2018 with the participation of the following speakers:

– Dr. Kristina Endres from Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy (UM JGU), DRZ, Mainz, Germany, talk entitled “Little steps into an exciting “new” world: Alzheimer’s disease and the gut microbiome”

– Prof. Dr. Jeroen Raes from RaesLab, VIB, Leuven, Belgium, talk entitled “Quantitative, population-level microbiome monitoring – the Flemish Gut Flora project”

– Dr. Bahtiyar Yilmaz from DBMR, Universität Bern, Switzerland, talk entitled “The clinical determinants shape gut microbial profile in inflammatory bowel disease patients”

On behalf of all the AD-gut Consortium, we would like to warmly thanks again our partner in Mainz for all the great organization of the successful events!!!
