The 2020 virtual meeting will feature a variety of interactive and pre-recorded sessions over 2 days. On the first day, Bonnie Schmidt from Let’s Talk Science will provide perspective on strategies to communicate science to a range of stakeholders. This theme will be carried forward immediately into an interactive “springboard” session.
Pre-recorded talks will include updates on Lactobacillus taxonomy changes and ISAPP consensus panels on synbiotics, postbiotics, and fermented foods. Also stay tuned for a virtual ‘Late Breaking News’ session (5-minute rapid-fire talks submitted by any participant) to complement the plenary lectures by top experts in the field.
NOTE: Previous registrations for the ISAPP 2020 annual meeting are no longer valid. Links will be available shortly for members to register to join the virtual live events via Zoom. Space is limited, so these registrations are on a first come, first served basis.
