Welcome to the 3rd Microbiome Movement - Human Nutrition Summit

Recent scientific and clinical advances over the past decade have identified the trillions of microbial cells that reside in the gut, collectively known as the gut microbiome, as a key regulator of human health and disease. This rapid rise in interest for the gut microbiome has permeated beyond the scientific community, exemplified by the rapid growth of the pro- and prebiotic market, now estimated to be a multibillion-dollar industry.

However, despite the rise in new products and services that claim to target the microbiome and improve health across adult and infant populations, there are fundamental questions surrounding the functional, clinical and practical applicability of microbiome-directed research that currently remains unresolved.

Celebrating our third year, the Microbiome Movement – Human Nutrition Summit returns to carefully combine cutting-edge basic and clinical science with product developers from the global food, supplement and nutraceutical industry to help answer these questions and accelerate the potential for microbiome-targeted solutions in nutrition.

Across three days, this year’s program will continue to highlight these key discussion areas:

Research

Research
Better demonstrate the scientific, mechanistic and clinical efficacy of diet-microbiome interactions across a diverse range of health indications and mechanisms.

Translation

Translation
Learn how start-ups, academics and leading nutritional brands are overcoming critical clinical, regulatory and commercialization challenges when utilizing microbiome science to drive the development of personalized nutritional solutions.

Communication

Communication
See how microbiome experts are establishing brands that engage their target market, to better communicate the benefits of microbiome research and help differentiate their products from competitors.
