Global Engage is pleased to announce the 3rd Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: Europe – the 8th meeting in our global microbiome series – which will be held in London, UK on 11-12 April 2016.


The field of metagenomics has allowed researchers to look into the diversity of the body’s microbiota with findings that the microbiome is a home for diversity, natural immunity, metabolism, behavioural traits, and plays an instrumental role in health and disease. With large-scale collaborative projects underway and sequencing data placed in the public domain, there is a rich source of information for researchers and companies looking for opportunities in this exciting field. With increasing signs that our microbiome may be the key not only for curative but preventative medicine, efforts are focusing on increasing both investment opportunities, clinical trials and innovative research in this area. With an increasing focus on healthy living and a therapeutics market that is expected to grow to $1.2 trillion by 2016, microbial research can be developed in order to provide preventative treatments, cures, therapies and supplements for a worldwide audience in demand.

Having attracted over 225 participants, the forum build upon the success of last year’s meetings, to explore the interface between our evolving cultures, technologies and our microbiome through a series of interactive presentations with leading academics and industry experts, panel discussions and an exhibition area allowing solution providers to showcase their most relevant products and services.

The agenda explored research and product development across the following areas:
  • Characterising the human microbiome
  • Venture capital, collaborations and investment
  • The human microbiome’s effect on health and disease
  • New research into different microbial systems – both inside and outside the GI tract
  • Probiotics, prebiotics, diet and the microbiome
  • Antibiotic resistance
  • Skin and dermatology research
The 2016 agenda is in development.  For a more detailed synopsis or to download the previous conference agenda, please visit the agenda page.
