9th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: USA

“We are all set to welcome you to the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina at the end of March. You can book your place now, confident that you will enjoy great networking and learning experience that only comes from in-person, face-to-face meetings.”

Steve Hambrook, CEO, Global Engage

Dedicated to exploring microbiome research and strategies for commercialisation and product development, we bring together KOLs to present a series of R&D case studies. Topics covered include gut health and disease, advances beyond the gut including cancer. A dedicated stream explores advances in understanding the role of the microbiome in women’s & infant health.

This meeting provides a networking experience in which industry/academia collaborations are forged to translate research into clinical trials. Plus, you will have ample opportunity to review more than 30 poster presentations and meet with 30+ exhibitors showcasing the latest products and services.

The meeting is once again collocated with the 3rd Skin & Cosmeceuticals Congress: USA and 6th Probiotics & prebiotics Congress: USA. Attendees can track-hop between all three events and have access to 75 presentations.

“The talks I went to had real content (data, innovative ideas, business impact)” 
“I met people from all areas in this growing industry… academia, pharma and consumer products”
“Deeper understanding of product concepts – especially clinical relevance and application to health outcomes”
“Excellent speakers … a mix of research and business focussed talks”
