About this Research Topic
In order to understand how its composition and functions support the maintenance of health, or reversely, trigger disease, it is important to decipher the mechanisms underpinning their interactions of the microbiome with the host, in particular, oral mucosal immunity. Progress in the field is driven by multi-omic technologies, new computational tools and imaging technologies, as well as advances in cellular and molecular biology.
The 2nd International Conference on Oral Mucosal Immunity and Microbiome, held under the auspices of the Aegean Conferences, aims to highlight cutting-edge basic and translational oral immunological and microbiological research. This 4-day conference takes place during September 2021 on the Greek island of Kos, home of Hippocrates, the father of medicine. The forum is panelled by global experts who summarize and discuss the latest progress in oral mucosal immunity and the oral microbiome. Target audience is basic and translational researchers with expertise in host immunity and microbiome research, pertinent to oral health and disease. The goal of the conference is to provide bridge gaps at the oral mucosal immunity-microbiome cross-talk, and deliver a translational spin to basic research, that may in the future yield clinical applications.
Submissions to this Research Topic are limited to the attendees of the 2nd International Conference on Oral Mucosal Immunity and Microbiome. This Research Topic represents the proceedings of the conference.
