About this event

Microbiome: Learning from the “Second Brain”

The gut microbiota is emerging as an important modulator of brain function and behavior. Scientists seek to dissect biological circuits for communication between the gut microbiota and nervous system, toward understanding fundamental biological pathways that influence brain and behavior. Microbiome treatments hold promise for treating many disorders including Asthma, Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis and Autism.

Our exciting event is a unique opportunity to witness world-class experts including a Keynote Speaker who’s both a noted researcher and founder, an expert panel of entrepreneurs and investors who bring a unique practical perspective, and an extended Q&A opportunity.
