Women & their Microbes

Join our 2019 conference!

Women play an undeniable role in the health of future generations partly through the maternal microbes. The microbial inheritance that occurs pre-, peri-, and post-natal has been linked to various consequences for both mother and child. As more evidence accumulates, the relevance of this unique scientific conference in bridging the science with medical and industry communities becomes all the more essential.

The theme of the 2019 conference will be “Microbiota Management in Pregnancy”. It will open with a clinical half-day that focusing on practice-changing microbiome science on March 6th and then March 7th with feature a full research day with top level academics and clinicians presenting their cutting edge science. Research will be presented in several formats, going from keynote lectures to workshops, poster sessions and rapid fire talks. All of this will take place just before International Women’s Day in the picturescque city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, which is home to more than 100 waterfalls and cascades.
