R&D and Business Collaborations in Microbiota Research,

Probiotics, Health and Disease

Global Engage is pleased to announce its 2nd Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Congress: Asia which will be held on 29 February - 1 March in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The field of metagenomics has allowed researchers to look into the diversity of the body’s microbiota with findings that the microbiome is a home for diversity, natural immunity, metabolism, behavioural traits, and plays an instrumental role in health and disease. With large-scale collaborative projects underway and sequencing data placed in the public domain, there is a rich source of information for researchers and companies looking for opportunities in this exciting field. With increasing signs that our microbiome may be the key not only for curative but preventative medicine, efforts are focusing on increasing investment opportunities, clinical trials and innovative research in this area. With an increasing focus on healthy living and a therapeutics market that is expected to grow to $1.2 trillion by 2016, microbiome research can be developed in order to provide preventative treatments, cures, therapies and supplements for a worldwide audience in demand.

Attracting over 150 attendees, the congress will build upon our established American and European meetings as well as last year’s highly-acclaimed Asia meeting to explore the interface between our evolving cultures, technologies and our microbiome through a series of interactive presentations with leading academics and industry experts, panel discussions and an exhibition area allowing solution providers to showcase their products and services. We will look into the latest scientific findings and see how we can develop microbiome research across the Asia-Pacific region and begin to look towards forging collaborations and commercializing this research.

The 2-day congress will examine a range of topics including:
  1. Characterizing the human microbiome
  2. Probiotics, prebiotics, diet and personalized nutrition
  3. Human microbiome in health and disease
  4. Gut microbiome and microbiome transplantation
  5. Research and development outside the gut
  6. Collaborations, investment and commercialization
  7. Skin and dermatology research
