A three-day symposium titled Gut Health in Production of Food Animals will be held November 1–4, 2020, in St. Louis, Missouri. The aim of this meeting is to discuss the role of good health in animal production and the dynamic and essential role the gut plays in it. The symposium will include all species in animal agriculture and cover different aspects of the gut and important factors in gut health maintenance and disease. The symposium will provide a platform to present the latest research findings, from the fundamental aspects of defining and measuring gut health to the complex and interactive roles of the intestinal microbiota, intestinal epithelium, immune cells, and nutrition in modern animal production. This symposium offers an opportunity to engage in scientific discussions and exchange opinions with university, government, and industry researcher.

The topics for abstracts are

  • Measurements of gut health / Intestinal barrier function (new ways to determine a healthy gut / barrier breakdown in disease or models and/or strengthening due to intervention)
  • Host mucosa-microbe interactions [mucus, epithelium, immune responses to microbes (commensals or pathogens)]
  • Mucosal immunobiology (anything immunology)
  • Nutrition and gut health (anything nutrition involving gut, not probiotics)
  • Measuring gut microbiota impact on gut health (microbiota/microbiome studies, must incorporate host measurements besides FCR and weight)
  • Mechanisms of beneficial microbes activity on gut health (mechanistic studies of probiotics, prebiotics, must incorporate mechanism of action studies)
  • Age-dependent development of the microbiome (acquisition and development of the microbiome; e.g., neonates/chicks to older animals)
  • Beneficial physiological effects of gut health (physiological studies beyond the gut, not FCR or weight alone)
  • Non-microbial interventions in gut health (anything impacting gut health that is not a pre- probiotic; e.g., small molecules, post-biotics)
