Cell Symposia: Infection Biology in the Age of the Microbiome
May 18 – 20, 2020 | Paris, France

Classical studies of microbiology neglected the roles of resident communities, within which most pathogens function, creating simpler models for studying infection. Traditionally, this area of research has been separate from studies of so-called good bugs. Yet recently, a microbial community view of pathogenesis has taken shape: one in which molecules, machinery, and mechanisms that were discovered studying bacterial infection are now being applied to understand the interplay between pathogens, resident microbes, and the host environment. The integration of next-generation sequencing, metabolomics, and genome-engineering techniques has expanded the horizons of infection biology, enabling the interrogation of increasingly complex systems.

The meeting will explore bacterial pathogens and pathogenesis from multiple perspectives, from cellular mechanisms to interbacterial interactions and community behavior, as well as pathogenesis in the complex milieu of the microbiota. The meeting will also highlight the pathogenic potential of the microbiome and explore microbiota-based and engineered antibacterial/therapeutic approaches.

Our topics will include:

  • Bacterial communication and signaling 
  • Interbacterial and interkingdom interactions
  • Pathogen interactions with hosts and microbiomes
  • Commensal homeostasis and dysbiosis
  • Microbiome-based opportunities for therapy

This innovative program will unite pathogenesis stalwarts with microbiome pioneers to share their collective knowledge—spanning molecules, microbes, and communities — to envision the future of infection biology research and therapeutic intervention.
