Join The Microbiome Movement

Pre-Conference Workshop
Monday, September 10

13.00 - 16.00
The Gut-Skin-Brain Axis in Health and Disease
Workshop Leader: Lionel Breton, L’Oreal Advanced Research, Scientific Director, L’Oreal

As crucial interface organs, the gut, brain and skin have much in common. Emerging research has shown that skin microbiota may play a critical role at the interface of all three organs. Therefore, it is not surprising that conditions affecting one organ’s microbiota may also have manifestations in the two others.

More importantly, a better understanding of the intestinal microflora and it’s subsequent relationship with our skin may provide new insights into developing unique product candidates that will accurately treat a spectrum of skin disease indications with current unmet needs.

As the microbiome continues to enter the scientific mainstream,  this multiple complexity organ is largely unexplored so join this unique workshop to discuss new translational approaches, advanced clinical links and the route to commercially viable therapeutics.
