				Big Banner - Microbiome Conference Series
	

From the earliest observations of differing microbes associated with the human body in the late 1600s, and beginnings of research in the 1800s there has been a rich history of scientific endeavour focusing on what is now known as the human microbiome. Who has not heard of Pasteur, Koch and Metchnikoff and their beliefs in the roles of microorganisms in human health and disease? The foresight of these pioneers, and others, prepared the foundations of a field of scientific study that we now believe can support human health in many ways.

Fast forward to 2021, the emerging science of the role of the gut microbiome in human health is growing extremely rapidly with enormous complexity. This virtual Gut Microbiome Conference Series aims to highlight the very latest science, from the leading scientific and application experts.

This could be the conference that gives you breakthrough ideas and inspiration to propel you in your research and business to find solutions that can improve human health!

  • Gut Microbiome and Human Health
  • Gut Microbiome and Immune Function
  • Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Health
  • Gut Microbiome, Cognitive and Mental Health

This conference is a must for professionals from the broader food industry, public health, research, academia, and government communities.

About the Webinar

Keeping food safe is a challenge.  With free trade and globalization of food products, there is an increase in food hazards to the population. Understanding the risks associated with chemical food safety hazards can effectively mitigate the risk of foodborne illnesses using a robust food safety management system.

This webinar will promote the understanding of the different chemical contaminants in food which may emerge or re-emerge as public health concerns for food safety, communicate the health impact of chemical food hazards and address emerging scientific issues related to chemical safety in food and water that are affecting the country.

Who Should attend

  • Government officials, policy-makers in the areas of food safety and public health Food
  • Food safety officers, scientific and regulatory affairs, R&D experts from the food industry and other sectors
  • Food and nutrition professionals
  • Academe, researchers and students

Globally, life expectancy has markedly increased due to declining infant mortality rates and lower mortality from infectious disease, medical advancements, better chronic disease management and socioeconomic progress. However, healthy life expectancy has not kept up with the pace. A rapidly aging and unhealthy population is a worrying prospect as the greatest asset for a country is its people.

In the face of these challenges, a fundamental shift towards health promotion and disease prevention is critical. Prioritizing health and wellness goals should start at the early stage and throughout the life course. An individual's advantage in an increasingly competitive and globalized society also hinges on its ability to learn fast, be adaptable and perform to one's full potential. This raises the important question of how we can better prepare ourselves in the coming years?
This symposium will dive into the key elements of optimizing one's health, wellness and potential from a life course perspective, and discuss how the environment and technology can be leveraged in this context.
  • Present current scientific evidence and the synergistic relationship of physical activity, nutrition, sleep and mental health
  • Discuss various nutritional, mental and health strategies in optimizing health, wellness and potential at different life stages
  • Understand the role and impact of environment on health, lifestyle and behavior
  • Discuss the use of cutting-edge AI innovations in translating health outcomes
  • Share efforts to promote a healthy and active living agenda for the population

From the earliest observations of differing microbes associated with the human body in the late 1600s, and beginnings of research in the 1800s there has been a rich history of scientific endeavour focusing on what is now known as the human microbiome. Who has not heard of Pasteur, Koch and Metchnikoff and their beliefs in the roles of microorganisms in human health and disease? The foresight of these pioneers, and others, prepared the foundations of a field of scientific study that we now believe can support human health in many ways.

Fast forward to 2021, the emerging science of the role of the gut microbiome in human health is growing extremely rapidly with enormous complexity. This virtual Gut Microbiome Conference Series aims to highlight the very latest science, from the leading scientific and application experts.

This could be the conference that gives you breakthrough ideas and inspiration to propel you in your research and business to find solutions that can improve human health!

  • Gut Microbiome and Human Health
  • Gut Microbiome and Immune Function
  • Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Health
  • Gut Microbiome, Cognitive and Mental Health

This conference is a must for professionals from the broader food industry, public health, research, academia, and government communities.
