The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP) is pleased to announce the opening of registration for its June 2018 international symposium in Singapore— and welcomes all interested participants around the world.
“Typically, ISAPP meetings are open only to invited experts and scientists from member companies,” says ISAPP Executive Science Officer Mary Ellen Sanders. “But in 2018, ISAPP features an open-registration event June 5th and 6th, welcoming all interested in the probiotic and prebiotic fields, including academicians, industry, regulators, and students.”
The 2018 conference will also mark the first time an ISAPP event has been hosted by a country in Asia. In choosing to congregate in Singapore, says Prof. Gregor Reid, the co-chair of this conference and featured speaker, “ISAPP recognizes the first-rate scientific expertise and growing markets in Asian countries.” He adds, “Our 2018 meeting in Singapore will allow us to better engage those in the Asian region while maintaining a top-notch program featuring global scientists.”
The theme of the conference is “Key Scientific Drivers Behind Probiotic and Prebiotic Applications.” Event’s speakers include global thought leaders in probiotic and prebiotic science, including Dr. Liping Zhao (China), Dr. Sarah Lebeer (Belgium), Dr. Glenn Gibson (UK), Dr. Seppo Salminen (Finland), and more. Plenary sessions will cover topics ranging from pediatric health and allergy to prebiotic mechanisms and strategies for health claim substantiation.
Invited experts and member company scientists will congregate on June 7th, after the main conference, for a “Day of Discussion” related to probiotics and prebiotics.
