Why The “Microbiome Movement”?

Recent breakthroughs in DNA sequencing, metagenomic analysis, and computational techniques have given scientists new insight into the structure and function of the human microbiota, an interconnected community of bacteria, archaea, viruses, and fungi.

It is now well established that the gut microbiome, the microbiota residing in the gut and respective genomes, plays a critical role in regulating the immune system, extracting energy from food, modulating metabolism and even influence psychological behavior.

This discovery of the gut microbiome’s importance in human health and disease has added a long overlooked component to the bidirectional communication between the brain and the gut which has triggered a renewed interest from industry, academic researchers, investors and public agencies.

The inaugural Gut-Brain Axis Summit is part of the successful “Microbiome Movement” series, a dedicated portfolio of events specifically designed to help translate cutting edge microbiome research into commercially viable products within pharmaceutical, agricultural, and nutritional R&D.
