LIA BactInflam - Summer School 2020

BactInflam Summer School

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, BactInflam coordinators have decided to postponed the Summer School.

Expected new dates are: June 28th-July 2nd 2021.

Bacteria and Inflammation: the bacterial components in inflammatory diseases in human and animal health

Bacteria and Inflammation

Bacterial communities inhabit many loci of the body in Humans and animals. They play a major in the homeostasis of organs such as the intestine, the vagina, the airways, the mammary glands, the skin, etc. A balanced and diverse ecosystem is a key element for a healthy and fully functional organ.

Bacterial communities are thus more and more regarded as a putative cause of diseases (when a dysbiosis occurs) as well as a potential remedy (when used to restore eubiosis) in both human and veterinary medicine.

In these contexts, the relationship between bacteria and inflammation is of peculiar interest.

Bacterial dysbiosis can trigger or result from inflammation. And chronic inflammation can deeply affect the host health. Selected bacteria can also be used as levers to bring a dysbiotic ecosystem back to the equilibrium, and thus alleviate many symptoms and or even treat and cure inflammatory diseases.

Interplay between bacteria and the immune system, seen through the prism of inflammation, immunomodulation, immune maturation or immune tolerance starts to be better understood, and breakthrough applications based on this new knowledge are now available on the market.

All these topics will be addressed in the BactInflam summer school.

Multidisciplinary approach

It is the principle of the International Associated Laboratory BactInflam to make immunologists and microbiologists work together to learn from each other and to use their knowledge to develop new therapeutic approaches.

People from various scientific background (immunology, microbiology, bioinformatics) and from the academic and private sectors must work together to increase our knowledge in this fascinating field and to generate breakthrough microbiota interventions against infections and inflammatory diseases.

Cette école d’été est une des actions programmées dans le cadre du Laboratoire International Associé BACTINFLAM labellisé par INRAE (France) et l’UFMG (Brésil) fin 2017.
