how they are essential to the life of humans, other animals, and plants
We share our whole lives with a community of millions of bacteria in our bodies. Most of these bacteria are not harmful and many are even beneficial. Recent advances in research show that the composition of this community can greatly influence our physiology and health, by affecting aspects ranging from metabolism to immunity.
The Conference, organized by the Institute Gulbenkian Ciência, aims to promote the knowledge generated in different research groups dedicated to study the profound impact of bacteria in our lives, but also in the lives of other animals and plants.
