MyNewGut R&I project - Final Conference
18 October 2018, Brussels, Belgium
EUFIC, together with all partners of the MyNewGut project, is organising a final conference to present the results of this five-year EU funded project and provide an input on how the human gut microbiota and its genome (microbiome) influence obesity, behavioural - and lifestyle-related disorders.
The MyNewGut project – which falls under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, - brings together 30 partners from 15 different countries and aimed to identify specific dietary strategies to improve the long-term health of the population.
Why is it relevant for research and innovation?
Emerging evidence indicates that the gut microbiome contributes to our ability to extract energy from the diet and influences development and function of the immune, endocrine and nervous systems, which regulate energy balance and behaviour. This has led to hypothesize that developing microbiome-based dietary interventions can be cost-effective measures to prevent diet-related and behavioural disorders.
