Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2nd Microbiome Forum: Europe – the 5th meeting in our global microbiome series – which will be held in London, UK on May
7-8, 2015.

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.

Attracting over 225 attendees, the forum will build upon the success of last year’s European meeting as well as our popular US and Asian events 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 products and services. The latest academic and industry research will explore the human microbiome 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 agenda for the 2015 meeting is in development. For a more detailed synopsis, please visit the agenda page or download the conference agenda when it comes available.
