6th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: USA

As part of its worldwide microbiome series, Global Engage is pleased to announce the 6th Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: USA which will be held on 29-30 October, 2018 and will be co-located with the 3rd Probiotics Congress: USA.

Last year’s congress attracted 400 industry, academic and investment leaders to discuss the microbiome in health and disease; challenges and opportunities in moving research towards commercialization; and potential partnerships and collaborations.

Attendees are expected to converge on San Diego this fall to hear a 70-strong speaker faculty discuss the latest developments; engage in expert-led roundtable discussions and extended panel discussions; analyse the newest biotech’s and start-ups worthy of investment; and utilise over seven hours of dedicated networking time to broaden business connections within the field. The Global Engage series is rapidly gaining a fantastic reputation as the number one microbiome networking event. If looking to either learn more from the top scientists in the microbiome and probiotic space; showcase exciting developments in your research; or seek partnerships and funding within the industry; it is a congress not be missed.

2018 Speakers include:


  • +70 presentations from industry and academic leaders
  • +7 hours of dedicated networking time
  • 10 expert-led roundtable discussions
  • 3 extended senior-level interactive panel discussions
  • Showcasing the latest start-ups
  • Fall sun in beautiful San Diego

Poster Presentations

Poster presentation sessions will take place in breaks and alongside the other breakout sessions of the conference. Your presentation will be displayed in a dedicated area, with the other accepted posters from industry and academic presenters.

We also issue a poster eBook to all attendees with your full abstract in and can share your poster as a PDF after the meeting if you desire (optional).

Whether looking for funding, employment opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, these are an excellent way to join the heart of this congress.

In order to present a poster at the forum you need to be registered as a delegate. Please note that there is limited space available and poster space is assigned on a first come first served basis (subject to checks and successful registration).

We charge an admin fee of $100 to industry delegates to present, that goes towards the shared cost of providing the poster presentation area and display boards, guides etc. This fee is waived for those representing academic institutions and not for profit organisations.

Submission instructions

We will require the form (downloadable below) to be submitted by the 12th October. This is the formal deadline however space is another limiting factor so early application is recommended. Therefore please contact us with any questions you have as soon as possible
