Recent studies highlight the extensive metabolic cross-talk between the microbiome, either symbiotic or pathogenic, and its host. Microbial communities dip into the host metabolic resources and produce metabolites influencing major molecular and physiological processes. On the other hand, there is now wide-recognition that immune cell differentiation and activation is intimately linked to cell subset-specific metabolic reprogramming. This meeting will bring together leading investigators in the fields of immunology, microbiology and metabolism, to discuss how the microbiome-host metabolic cross-talk can be manipulated in novel preventive and personalized therapeutic approaches.
