The discovery of diverse microbiota has spurred new research, expanding our understanding of the microbiome’s crucial role in health, disease, and prevention. The microbiome has gained increased attention for being recognized as a promising avenue to enhance human health. Researchers and industry players collaborate to bring microbiome discoveries to the market, presenting a unique investment opportunity. This, combined with large-scale collaborations and the sharing of sequencing data, establishes the microbiome as a significant force in science and medicine, essential for future interventions.

At the Raes lab, we actively contribute to this field by employing large-scale, next-generation sequencing, and innovative computational approaches. Our focus is on exploring the functionality and variability of the healthy human microbiome at the systems level. We delve into understanding alterations in the microbiome during disease, uncovering distinct gut flora types (enterotypes) independent of host factors. Our research extends to investigating the predictive capabilities of microbial markers for various intestinal diseases. Additionally, we pioneer the development of computational methods for analyzing (next-generation) sequence data and exploring community properties across diverse environments, including oceans and soil.

I am honoured to deliver the opening keynote address at the 8th Microbiome & R&D & Business Collaboration Congress: Asia. This event aims to showcase groundbreaking research on microbiome and probiotics, and pledges to provide substantial insights and strategies for researchers and developers in transforming scientific discoveries into viable products.

I look forward to presenting the talk entitled “Quantitative microbiome profiling in health and disease” on the 7th of May 2024.

See you in Singapore!

    Sustainability

    Global Engage is working towards a sustainable future. As part of this efforts, we are committed to selecting venues with more sustainable practices.

    WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?

    Event App
    We have reduced waste by replacing printed documentation with an app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting. Get Agorify on Google Play and Apple App Store.

    Catering
    You will have some great food choices while you are with us but now we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. We have also built a plan with the venue to avoid waste through how they serve meals and how any leftovers are processed. Our aim is that you have some great meals, whilst with us, but with less environmental impact by the time you leave.

    Travel
    An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares.

    Poster presentation

    This conference definitely provides an ideal platform to showcase your works with a captive audience. Whether looking for funding, job opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, poster presentations are an excellent way to join the heart of the congress.

    NEW for 2024We have reserved a 10-minute session in both tracks across two-days for non-vendor authors to present a flash presentation of their poster in order to showcase their work.

    Poster abstract submission deadline is on 12th April 2024. Contact: haley@global-engage.com to get abstract submission form or for any inquiries or download the form HERE.
