23–25 September 2019 7th EUROBIOTECH Congress

Krakow, Poland

With great pleasure we are announcing that the 7th edition of the European Congress of Life Sciences Eurobiotech will be held in Krakow, Poland, from 23 to 25 September 2019. We look forward to welcoming you in Kraków - in a city of rich history, culture and science. Every year we listen closely to opinions of the participants and take them into account during preparation for the next edition of Congress. It is our responsibility to make sure that we will prepare the Congress which will meet the most demanding requirements.
AGROBIOTECHNOLOGY and PERSONALISED MEDICINE will be the leading motives of the 7th Eurobiotech. Since biotechnology is controversial for many people in our society we shall try to answer some critical questions: Who needs modern biotech and why? Will it be possible to perform modern agriculture as well as personalised medicine without it? Do we have any chance to avoid innovative bio-technologies in order to guarantee food, feed, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and bio-materials for 10 billion people in the perspective of the year 2050?! Is there any other way? Taking into account public perception as market value factor how to answer on the basic question: Who should make crucial decisions - all society or an elite group of experts?
We will do our best to find the answers to these and many more questions using solid bioscience: bioinformatics, genomics, synthetic biology, microbiology but also newest molecular techniques such as sequencing, new breeding techniques [NBT] and plant’s diagnostic.
We look forward to welcoming you in September 2019 in Krakow!

21–23 June 2016 The International Scientific Conference on Probiotics and Prebiotics ­IPC2016

Budapest Marriot Hotel, Hungary

10 reasons to attend the International Scientific Conference on Probiotics and Prebiotics - IPC2016

Probiotics are nonpathogenic live microorganism that can provide a diverse health benefits on the host. Prebiotics is a non-digestible fiber compounds that induce the growth or activity of microorganisms. Taking probiotics plus prebiotics could bring diverse types of health benefits. Probiotics are consumed in diverse ways including dairy product, food supplements and functional foods with specific health claims. Recently, many reports suggest that certain probiotic strains or multi strain mixture have potent immunomodulatory activity in diverse disorders including allergic asthma, atopic dermatitis and rheumatoid arthritis. However some of the probiotic strains have an adverse effect on people with underlying health problems or immuno-compromised individuals. In addition, however, efficacy of probiotic administration is quite different depending on the type of strains and the amounts of doses and underlying mechanism of action is still unclear. By attending the International Scientific Conference on Probiotics and Prebiotics - IPC2016, you will have a chance to expand your ideas on recent advances made in the science of probiotics, highlighting their current and future roles in maintaining health and preventing diseases. The next IPC will be held during 21st - 23rd June 2016 in Budapest, Hungary.
