Exploring Host-Oral Microbiome Interactions

Time: 3:00 pm
day: Pre-Conference Focus Day


  • Associating oral health with elevated risk for cardiovascular, metabolic and cognitive diseases
  • Linking the oral microbiome disturbances to systemic health by analysing production of a signalling molecule nitric oxide (NO), a regulator of vascular tone and neurotransmission
  • Focussing on ‘host-oral microbiome’ interactions that govern NO homeostasis, with potential for therapies for cognitive and cardiovascular impairment in older age
