Probiota Asia 2018 is now inviting abstracts for the Scientific Frontiers sessions at the conference. Successful abstracts will have the opportunity to be selected for either a short oral presentation (10 minutes) or a poster at the conference.

We are looking for abstracts presenting the latest state-of-the-art developments related to all aspects of prebiotic, probiotic and microbiome science relevant to human health, well-being, consumers and industry.  We are particularly interested in reports from human intervention studies.

We welcome abstracts from those engaged in all aspects of microbiome science in academia, industry and consumer health, particularly those representing successful academe-industry interactions.

The closing date for entries is Wednesday 29 August, 2018

All abstracts submitted will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee, made up of leading experts within the fields of pre and probiotics.  Successful authors will be invited to present their work either as an oral presentation or a poster at Probiota Asia conference running from 17-19 October in Singapore.
