The deadline for submitting entries to the Scientific Frontiers and Probiota Pioneers for the upcoming IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas is fast approaching, but there's still time to showcase your research or innovative startup.

NutraIngredients-USA has two separate opportunities: First, we are looking for entrepreneurial consumer-facing, science- or technology-based start-ups to join our Probiota Pioneers session. Second, we’re on the lookout for the latest state-of-the-art developments related to prebiotic, probiotic, postbiotic and microbiome science relevant to human health for presentation at our Scientific Frontiers Session.

If selected, successful entries from both categories will have the opportunity to present at IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas​ in Salt Lake City, UT in June 2024.

The IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas​, taking place at the Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City, June 10-12, 2024​, aims to bridge the gaps between cutting-edge science, business strategy and key regulatory developments in the microbiome, probiotic and prebiotic markets.

The three-day event will bring together industry leaders, academics and key stakeholders for otherwise impossible networking opportunities, in addition to interactive presentations and debates that look to share new data, drive new science, boost business growth and aid product development in the rapidly growing and overlapping fields of probiotics, prebiotics and the microbiome.

The deadline for entries is FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 2024.

Scientific Frontiers

Our Scientific Frontiers​ cover the latest state-of-the-art developments related to prebiotic, probiotic and microbiome science relevant to human health, well-being, consumers and industry.

We’re pleased to announce that there are now two categories for submission: Researchers will be required to select if they are submitting their abstracts as industry research or as student-led research projects (open to PhD students). As part of this new selection to support those upcoming in the industry, the winning student-led abstract author will receive an all-expenses* paid trip to attend the IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas 2024.

The top-rated industry abstract will receive a complimentary delegate place** to attend the IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas, have the opportunity to present their research live from the stage as part of the 2024 conference program and a 2024 Scientific Frontiers Trophy.

All abstract submissions will be reviewed by our Scientific Committee made up of leading experts from the fields of pre- and probiotics. All accepted abstracts will be invited to present a poster at our event in Milan, while the winning abstract will be invited to give a presentation during the IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas​.

We are particularly interested in reports from human intervention studies and welcome abstracts from those engaged in all aspects of microbiome science in academia, industry and consumer health, particularly those representing successful academia-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
