Agenda

As well as changing the location, the agenda has been completely remodelled in order to provide you and your peers with an outstanding learning and networking experience. For example, this year the programme incorporates round table discussions where, guided by an expert, you, together with your peers, can debate the challenges and tease out the opportunities to be found in: IBD/IBS research, venture capital & funding and drug development, to name but a few. Alternatively, if you are looking to invest or find an investor, the new start-up investor pitch sessions will be the place to be.

Keynote speakers

  • Elena Verdú, Associate Professor, Division of Gastroenterology, McMaster University, Canada
  • Paul Wilmes, Associate Professor, Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine, University of Luxembourg

Testimonials

What our delegates say about the conference

Refreshing speakers

The quality of presentations has been really good. There was an interesting mix of business focused and scientific presentations. It’s been refreshing to have different speakers. I’ve been at quite a few microbiome conferences in the last year or so and there’s new talks here that I’ve not heard before.

Karen Scott

Associate Professor, Gut Health Theme, Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health

Companies with products

There’s been all sorts of presentations on different aspects of the human microbiome, on the development of the brain, on the impact of the human microbiome on various diseases, of increases of sequencing technologies and what that’s allowed us to do. I also find it very useful that there were so many people with a developed product. It was extremely valuable having these two communities together in such close proximity.

Martha Clokie

Reader in Microbiology, University of Leicester

Up-to-date

This conference is one of the very few that really gives us a large review about what’s going on in this booming field of microbiomes.

Isabelle de Cremoux

CEO, Seventure

Not just for scientists

We’ve seen some really good science, some really high quality research, we’ve also had a discussion about how you can invest in the space, and some of the challenges around developing products as opposed to pure science. It makes it very interesting.

Alex Stevenson

Director, 4D Pharma Plc
