9:00 am – 12:30 pm
Zoom Webinar (Eventbrite)
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 highlighted the very latest science, from the leading scientific and application experts.
This conference provided you with breakthrough ideas and inspiration to propel you in your research and business to find solutions that can improve human health!
Topics of special focus:
- Gut Microbiome and Human Health
- Gut Microbiome and Immune Function
- Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Health
- Gut Microbiome, Cognitive and Mental Health
Please note that participants will be notified via email once the conference recording is ready for access which will take a few weeks.
