The date of the 2016 Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit is quickly approaching! More than 200 researchers, healthcare professionals and journalists will converge in Miami, Florida (USA) on March 5th and 6th for a unique educational experience focused on gut microbiota.

The Gut Microbiota for Health team is preparing for a weekend of intense learning from gut microbiota scientific experts from Israel, Ireland, France, Sweden, Spain, and all over the USA.

Participating in person is the best way to take advantage of this gathering of experts. But if you can’t make it to Miami, you can still take part!

Grab your weekend cup of coffee and follow the summit’s plenary sessions from home as they live stream online:
