An international symposium on Microbes & brain at Institut Pasteur, Paris on July 3, 2015 - Registration are open

This symposium will take place at the Institut Pasteur within the framework of the Grand Programme Fédérateur Microbes & Brain (GPF M&B), which aims at creating synergy between Neurosciences, Microbiology and Immunology, three strong research traditions at the Institut. This synergy should generate cutting-edge knowledge of how microbes and brain interact to maintain health or drive pathology.

The objective is to present ground-breaking research deciphering the impact of microbiota on biological functions related to the nervous system, including the blood brain barrier, metabolism and immunity of the brain, and behavior.
