4th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Congress: Asia

R&D and Business Collaborations in Microbiota Research, Probiotics, Health and Disease

The 4th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Congress: Asia will be held on March 5 – 6, 2018. It is co-located with the 3rd Probiotics Congress. Building on the success of 2015, 2016 and 2017 meetings the event will bring well over 200 attendees from across the world to Singapore.

Becoming a fast-growing sector, microbiome has provided scientists with the opportunity to explore the diversity of microbiota in the human body. This area of research is associated with immunity, behavioral traits and has revolutionised by playing a vital role in health and disease. With the current movement in the area, it is time for research experts and industry players to work together towards bringing microbiome to market, focusing on investment opportunities with large-scale collaborations underway and sequencing data placed in the public domain. The microbiome concept is indeed a promising prospect to improve human health, as it enables us to step forward and manipulate microbiota in a variety of ways. Due to this reason, microbiome research is set to make waves in the science and medical world through its applications in preventive treatments, therapies, cures and supplements.
