Seminar "The gut microbiome, from health to disease: revisiting the Koch’s postulates" with Philippe Sansonetti

Prof. Philippe Sansonetti, one of Europe’s leading microbiologists, will give a lecture on 25 June 2019 at 3pm at the House of the Estates (Säätytalo) in Helsinki. The event is open to the public but pre-registration is required. Welcome!

Date and time  
Tuesday, 25 June at 3pm to 5pm

The event is open to the public but pre-registration is required. Places are limited so we would like to encourage you to register as soon as possible at https://bit.ly/2YILcsg



The seminar will address the new world of the microbiota and how it is affecting our vision on host-microbe interactions in health and disease.It will also address the ism of causality in the relationship between altered microbiota and a series of epidemic, "post-modern", not communicable diseases. Hence the needto revisit Koch’s postulates. Download the flyer.

The seminar is organised in the framework of the cooperation between the Institut Français de Finlande, the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters and the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters.
