8th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: USA

This meeting is now being held virtually

New for 2020

We have restructured the Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: USA to cover six distinct themes in greater detail.

  1. Gut Microbiota for Health & Disease
  2. Gut-Brain Axis
  3. Women’s Health
  4. Infant Microbiome
  5. Cancer
  6. Business Collaboration – Regulations and Investment

The meeting is once again collocated with the 2nd Skin & Cosmeceuticals Congress: USA and 5th Probiotics & prebiotics Congress: USA. Attendees can track-hop between all three events and have access to 100 presentations.

A panel discussion explores the various sources of funding for microbiome products. A second, led by the FDA, will look at regulatory perspectives of skin microbiome products. Expert-led round tables will provide you with a forum to discuss a range of topics such as the challenges for microbiome-based precision medicine or the skin microbiome and the future of “clean beauty.”

“the talks I went to had real content (data, innovative ideas, business impact) and the speakers had the right expertise in the field” 
“I meet with people representing different areas in this growing industry, including academia, pharma, and other companies”
“deeper understanding of product concepts – especially clinical relevance and application to health outcomes”
“excellent speakers … a mix of research and business focussed talks”
