The Gut-Bone Axis: A Society for Endocrinology Themed Scientific Meeting
Norwich Medical School and Quadram Institute, University of East Anglia, Norwich, Norfolk, UK.
A two-day scientific symposium bringing together researchers and clinicians from the immunology, bone and gut fields with internationally renowned keynote speakers, orals selected from abstract submissions and poster presentations.
Traditionally, many would have thought that two physiological systems could hardly be more remote from one another than the skeleton and the GI tract. However, increasingly, key functional links between the two are being recognized. Given the central role of the gut in absorbing nutrients essential to bone development and homeostasis and given the well recognised links between GI pathology such as Coeliac disease and skeletal disease such as osteoporosis perhaps this is not so surprising. Disorders of calcium and bone metabolism are common, affecting over 3 million people in the UK in the form of osteoporosis alone, and are now increasingly recognised to be linked to disturbances of gut function. Mechanisms including hormonal secretion, nutrient uptake, balance of gut microbiota, immune regulation and doubtless others yet to be described are all at play. Altered microbial composition is involved in a range of inflammatory conditions, both within and outside the gut, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel diseases, diabetes, food allergies, eczema, and asthma as well as obesity and the metabolic syndrome. This themed scientific meeting aims to explore new and emerging areas that link gut and bone health.
Come and join us for world-class scientific and clinical presentations, meet the experts in the field and enjoy an open top bus tour social networking event in Norwich city centre on the evening of the 2nd July.
