Testimonials

What our delegates say about the conference

Refreshing speakers

The quality of presentations has been really good. There was an interesting mix of business focused and scientific presentations. It's been refreshing to have different speakers. I've been at quite a few microbiome conferences in the last year or so and there's new talks here that I've not heard before.

Karen Scott

Associate Professor, Gut Health Theme, Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health

Companies with products

There's been all sorts of presentations on different aspects of the human microbiome, on the development of the brain, on the impact of the human microbiome on various diseases, of increases of sequencing technologies and what that's allowed us to do. I also find it very useful that there were so many people with a developed product. It was extremely valuable having these two communities together in such close proximity.

Reader in Microbiology, University of Leicester

Up-to-date

This conference is one of the very few that really gives us a large review about what's going on in this booming field of microbiomes.

Isabelle de Cremoux

CEO, Seventure

Not just for scientists

We've seen some really good science, some really high quality research, we've also had a discussion about how you can invest in the space, and some of the challenges around developing products as opposed to pure science. It makes it very interesting.

Director, 4D Pharma Plc
