Microorganisms and lung ecology: living in peace with bugs

Chairs: A. Dinh-Xuan (Paris, France), N. Roche (Paris, France)
Aims: To improve the understanding of (i) the subtle interactions between humans and microorganisms both within and outside the context of infections; (ii) how the respiratory immune system can move from homeostasis to dysbiosis; (iii) the roles that the interactions between humans and microorganisms play in the pathogenesis and natural history of pneumonia and chronic noncommunicable respiratory diseases; and (iv) the potential of treatments that modulate the microbiome.
