The microbiome is the collection of microorganisms that inhabit the human body –90% of which are bacteria– and it plays an essential role in how the body works and in our health. In recent years, scientists have begun to unravel its scientific and therapeutic potential in many disciplines of medicine and have shown that alterations in this system can be associated with diseases such as obesity, diabetes, certain types of cancer and HIV.

'The Barcelona Debates on the Human Microbiome. From Microbes to Medicines' is the title of the upcoming B·Debate where national and international experts will discuss the latest research findings in this field.

The scientific leaders of this debate are Bonaventura Clotet, director of IrsiCaixa AIDS Research Center and Roger Paredes, researcher of the same center.
