Welcome

The set of microbial communities that have colonized our intestine is what is called the Gut Microbiota. Currently, what is known about their composition and their functions is rapidly increasing. Importantly, this is leading to new discoveries about health. It has been shown that intestinal microbiota regulates our weight, mood, inflammation processes, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, autism, among other process, and the response to pharmacological treatments. It is time for alcohol to be investigated within the context of the intestinal microbiota.

So far, several investigations have shown that the intestinal microbiota is modified by alcohol consumption, and vice versa, that the intestinal microbiota regulates alcohol consumption. This affects psychiatric diseases and diseases related to alcohol-induced damage, such as in the liver. This suggests a new perspective of coping for the understanding and treatment of alcohol addiction. It is a new opportunity that researchers in the field of alcohol should seriously consider. It is for this reason that the Madrid ESBRA-Nordmann Award meeting tries to gather relevant researchers in the field and offers a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and establish future lines of collaboration.

The program will cover the topics:

  • Alcohol, microbiota and Brain
  • Gut microbiota and alcohol related organ damage: Liver and immune system
  • Wine, beer Mediterranean diet and microbiota
  • Free presentations

We believe that the meeting in Madrid ESBRA-Nordmann Award Meeting will be disruptive in the understanding of the intestinal microbiota in the field of alcohol addiction. Please, be welcome!
