On October 6th 2016, Alfonso Benítez-Páez (IATA-CSIC, Spain) attended the European OneHealth/EcoHealth Workshop organised by Biodiversity and Health, in Brussels, Belgium. This workshop aims to bring together people from different communities in science, policy and practice to exchange experience and views, and discuss opportunities and challenges for integration and practice. Here he discussed MyNewGut and the application of the microbiomes influence on energy balance and brain development-function to tackle diet-related diseases and behaviours.
From September 26th – 28th 2016, Alfonso Benítez-Páez (IATA-CSIC, Spain) will be presenting at Conference MiCRObiota Incognita (Island Krk, Croatia). The conference MiCRObiota Incognita is organised by Biodinamik to educate young scientists about new improvements and innovations in the Microbiome field and motivate them to resolve open questions.
Alfonso’s presentation will discuss MyNewGut and the role of gut microbes as potential therapy against diet-related diseases. You can find an abstract of his presentation through the read more link below.

This year the INRA team (French National Institute for Agriculural Research) has presented in 4 different conferences in France to share results obtained in the My New Gut human study. This study aimed at evaluating the effects of the quantity and quality of protein intake on the microbiota composition, feces and urinary bacterial metabolite composition, and consequences for the rectal mucosa.
