The human microbiome is essential for human health and body functioning. We are beginning to elucidate the enormous scientific and therapeutic potential of the human microbiome in almost all medical fields.

The Barcelona Debates on the Human Microbiome – From Microbes to Medicines, organized by B·Debate, an initiative of Biocat and "la Caixa" Foundation, co-organized with IrsiCaixa AIDS Research Center, will bring together international renowned experts from different disciplines currently investigating the microbiome. We will have the unique opportunity to know first-hand the latest research findings of microbiome studies applied in areas such as healthy aging, neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, infectious diseases and digestive diseases.

Discussions will also focus on the emerging importance of the interaction between fungal and bacterial communities and its impact on health.

Scientific leaders of this debate are Bonaventura Clotet from IrsiCaixa AIDS Research Center and Roger Paredes from IrsiCaixa AIDS Research Center.
