5th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Congress: Asia

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


Associated with immunity and behavioural traits, the microbiome is known to be paramount in maintaining health and preventing disease. What is also becoming clear is that the diversity of the Asia-Pacific region – geographically, culturally and economically – has produced variations in microbiota which may contribute to differences in how various diseases present and respond to standard treatments.

Against this backdrop, I am delighted to announce that the 5th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Congress Asia is co-hosted with the National Central University and National Chiao Tung University (GLORIA) of Taiwan. The congress takes place on the 6th and 7th of March 2019 in Taiwan. It is co-located with the 4th Probiotics Congress Asia.

The Taiwan Microbiome Congress is organized by National Central University and National Chiao Tung University (GLORIA) of Taiwan

These three meetings offer a strong focus on Asia, including an update from the Asian gut microbiome project, and are unmissable. They bring together leading global and regional researchers and key industry players working towards bringing microbiome discoveries to the market.
