Over 100 presentations were given at the 2019 US series. Attendees discovered the latest novel research and development trends, explored successful business and commercialisation strategies, and discovered how to translate findings into viable products through collaborative partnerships and funding opportunities. The meeting had a focus on metabolic functioning, autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, the gut-brain axis and the relationship between the microbiome and cancer, explored the composition of the gut microbiome, and the tools and technologies used to study microbial communities. 

“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”
