New probiotic and prebiotic trials are published all the time – but when they show a health benefit, what do we know about the basic science behind it?
To provide insight into this topic, ISAPP has partnered with the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Europe on a free webinar titled Understanding Prebiotic and Probiotic Mechanisms that Drive Health Benefits. This webinar will help scientists, members of the public, and media take a deep dive into what we know about the mechanisms of action of probiotics and prebiotics.
The webinar will take place on Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 3 – 4:15pm Central European Time. Registration is required here.
Short, 10-minute perspectives will be provided by the following top experts:
- Prof. Sarah Lebeer, University of Antwerp, Belgium
- Prof. Colin Hill, University College Cork, Ireland
- Prof. Karen Scott, University of Aberdeen, UK
- Prof. Koen Venema NUTRIM School of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism, Venlo, The Netherlands
The presentations will be followed by a 35-minute live Q&A session, enabling participants to probe deeper into the science behind mechanisms of probiotics and prebiotics.
ILSI Europe is a non-profit organization that aims to improve public health and well-being from a science-based approach.
