Members of the scientific committee, representing 3 medical societies (ESNM, ESPGHAN and AGA), have put together a one-of-a-kind program. Because microbiome research started 10 years ago on the American continent, in Europe and also in Asia, participants will receive an overview of the results of these 10 years of research. In addition, they will be able to discover more recent discoveries on intestinal microorganisms, other than bacteria, which are important for health or diseases.
Smaller group workshops provide additional focus on topics ranging from fecal microbiota transplantation to the microbiota-gut-brain axis, led by scientific experts. The program also features a workshop on the role of nutrition and gut microbiota that is specifically designed for dietitians.
Faced with the nearly impossible task of keeping up with the latest advances in this rapidly growing field, scientists and healthcare professionals who attend the 2017 GMFH World Summit will join the elite group worldwide who know the state-of-the-art of gut microbiota research, including potential clinical applications.
