A lecture taking place at the Crick.

JSPS-Crick Symposium on Gut Tissue Circuits

The gastrointestinal tract is a densely innervated organ that also contains the largest number of immune cells in the body. In addition, the gut lumen harbours a complex microbial community known as gut microbiota. Therefore, gut tissue constitutes a unique environment where microbes, neurons and immune cells are closely interacting within the same organ. This symposium will bring together researchers from across the fields of immunology, neuroscience, and microbiology, and will focus on how intestinal homeostasis is maintained by the gut tissue circuits.
