The Gut Microbiota & Health section of the European Society of Neurogastroenterology & Motility (ESNM), the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) look forward to welcoming a worldwide group of clinical researchers and healthcare professionals to the 2017 Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit on March 11th and 12th! The event, which counts with the support of Danone, Biocodex and Sanofi, is scheduled to be held in Paris (at Le Méridien Étoile Hotel). It will give participants an overview of the latest gut microbiota science and its practical applications.
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.
