【O-14】 Present and Perspective of microbiome science in the maintenance and control of human health

Accumulating evidence has revealed that microbiota coexisting in humans such as gut commensal bacteria regulate the development of disease and thus we are now recognizing it as one of new approaches in the maintenance and promotion of human health. In addition to direct interaction between microbiota and host, diet also affects microbiota-mediated host responses. Current advances in this research allow the providing new knowledge based on scientific evidence. In this session, we will introduce the cutting-edge information and discuss the perspective on this field.
