Madrid, March 7-8, 2020

The gut Microbiome field is moving rapidly and the number of publications increases exponentially impacting basic science research as well as clinical practice in numerous areas. On behalf of the GMFH Scientific Committee, I am happy to invite you to join us in Madrid (Spain) for the ninth annual Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit on March 7 & 8, 2020. The summit is sponsored by the European Society for Neurogastroenterology & Motility (ESNM) and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), with the endorsement of the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS). It will be an excellent occasion to learn about the new discoveries on the role of the gut microbiome in health and diseases and how they are or will be translated to clinical practice for the benefit of health care professionals and patients.

The 2020 program is particularly exciting with the intervention of outstanding international faculty. We will have plenary sessions and workshops dedicated to various aspects including the dietary and non-dietary factors shaping the gut Microbiome, the role of the Gut Microbiome in the modulation of the immune system, Microbiome – drug interactions, gut-brain axis, and fecal microbiota transplantation.

This interdisciplinary scientific program targets a large audience from Microbiome scientists to health care professionals including physicians, nurses, dietitians, and nutritionists.

We look forward to welcoming you to the summit in Madrid!
