Editorial from Dr. Francisco Guarner

Chair of the 2017 Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit Scientific Committee

Our knowledge on the microbial communities that inhabit the human gut has grown exponentially during the last few years, and there is a profusion of novel information flowing from basic science laboratories into the clinical sceneries. The Summit aims at translating the most recent advances to the medical community.

This year’s scientific program includes both plenary session lectures and interactive, discussion-based workshops on topics targeting not only practitioners, including physicians, physicians’ assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses, dietitians, nutritionists, but also scientists interested in the gut microbiome and its role in health and disease.

This international event will take place in Le Méridien Etoile Congress Centre (downtown Paris). We hope very much that you will join us for this important event and look forward to welcoming you to the summit.

In 2017, there will be only one event tailored to clinical researchers and healthcare professionals that will provide both a broad overview of the newest gut microbiota science and access to the top international researchers in the field—mark your calendars now for the 2017 Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit, March 11th and 12th, 2017 in Paris!

At this 6th edition of the GMFH World Summit, you’ll spend a weekend learning from and collaborating with your peers from over 30 countries. With a selection of plenary sessions and smaller group workshops, you’ll walk away knowing you are among the elite group of healthcare professionals worldwide who are up to date on the latest clinical applications of gut microbiota science.

The event is a collaboration between the Gut Microbiota & Health section of the European Society of Neurogastroenterology & Motility (ESNM) and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), in partnership with the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN). This 2017 edition of the Gut Summit is supported by Danone, Biocodex, and Sanofi.
