Recent breakthroughs in DNA sequencing, metagenomic analysis, and computational techniques have given scientists new insight into the composition and function of the human microbiome. It is now well established that the gut microbiome plays a critical role in regulating the immune system, extracting energy from food, modulating metabolism and even influencing psychological behavior.

One promising application of the microbiome that has stimulated interest from food manufacturers, nutritional scientists and biotech organizations is the ability to translate causative science into evidence-based nutritional interventions that positively impact human health.

The Microbiome Movement – Human Nutrition Summit has been specifically designed to help translate cutting edge microbiome research into commercially viable products across pharmaceutical, agricultural, and nutritional R&D.
