The NutraIngredients-USA and Probiota Americas team are inviting abstract proposals from academic researchers and industry professionals on the latest state-of-the-art developments related to all aspects of prebiotic, probiotic and microbiome science relevant to health, well-being, consumers and industry ahead of Probiota Americas 2015.
All abstract submissions will be reviewed by the Probiota Americas Scientific Committee - led by Dr Susan Mitmesser, Director, Nutrition Research, NBTY Inc., and made up of leading experts from the fields of pre- and probiotics. Successful abstracts will be presented as posters at the Probiota Americas conference running from June 3-5, 2015 in San Diego.
Posters will be judged on-site by the scientific committee and the winning poster authors will be invited to give a short presentation of their work to the Probiota Americas audience.
Those whose abstracts are accepted as posters will receive a 50% discount on the delegate price for Probiota. Please note that all discount information will be sent when authors are notified that their abstract has been accepted.
Here’s a video of the winners of the first Scientific Frontiers poster session at Probiota Global in Amsterdam earlier this year:
Abstracts are welcomed from those engaged in all aspects of microbiome science in academia, industry and consumer health, particularly those representing successful academe-industry interactions.
Early-phase, novel, or state-of-the-art research or promising ideas covering the following topics are encouraged:
Host-microbe interactions in health and disease, including preclinical and clinical studies evaluating pre- and probiotic interventions.
Application and development of “-omics” approaches in biomarker discovery, including identification of potential pre- and probiotic strains. Research identifying strain-specific effects of probiotics for health and wellbeing, including mechanism of action and bioactive discovery and isolation.
Early findings from large scale research projects and clinical trials.
Innovations and novel ideas in the areas of production processes, delivery, formulation and shelf-life
Consumer and market insights, including population research, trends and threats, commercial packaging and marketing.
Where applicable the potential for commercial application of the research should be highlighted to support the Probiota Americas aims of bridging the interface between academia and industry.
