The 2nd Probiotics Congress: USA

As part of its worldwide microbiome series, Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2nd Probiotics Congress: USA which is co-located with the 5th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: USA and which will be held on 2-3 November 2017.

Last Year’s congress attracted over 350 industry, academic and investment leaders to discuss the probiotics in health and disease; commercial challenges and opportunities; and potential partnerships and collaborations.

Over 400 attendees are expected to converge on San Diego this fall to hear a 70-strong speaker faculty discuss the latest developments; engage in expert-led roundtable discussions and extended panel discussions; analyse the newest biotechs and start-ups worth of investment, and utilise over seven hours of dedicated networking time to broaden business connections within the field. The Global engage series is rapidly gaining a fantastic reputation as the number one microbiome and probiotics networking event. If looking to either learn more from the top scientists in this space; showcase exciting developments in your research; or seek partnerships and funding within the industry; it is a congress not to be missed.

Maria Saarela from the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland presents Recent Developments in Probiotic Research and the Market.




The agenda is designed to provide you with an outstanding learning and networking experience. For example, the program incorporates roundtable discussions where, guided by an expert, you, together with your peers, can debate the challenges and tease out the opportunities to be found in next generation probiotics and probiotic screening & quality control to name but two.  A panel discussion will examine the opportunities for smarter cosmetics, while individual talks will cover regulatory concerns, functional foods, encapsulation technology and strain specific enumeration using dPCR. Plus, with leading companies from industry and smaller companies showcasing their research & solutions, this is the one forum to establish collaborative partnerships that will turn research ideas into the health transforming products of tomorrow.
