25–27 September 2019 Nutrients 2019 - Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease

Barcelona, Spain

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce our first international conference Nutrients 2019 - Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease. The conference is organized by the MDPI open-access journal Nutrients (Impact Factor 4.196) and will be held as a three-day event in Barcelona, Spain, from September 25‒27, 2019.

Chronic diseases are increasing throughout the developed and developing world. A significant contributor to the burgeoning rates of chronic disease is diet, with some dietary components contributing to disease development, and others being protective. We invite researchers, food industry representatives, policy makers, and others with an interest in the impacts of diet on chronic disease to join us for what will be an exciting event.

The conference will host a number of internationally renowned speakers, and invites submissions for oral presentations and posters. All presenters at the conference will be encouraged to submit a full manuscript of their presentation for consideration for publication in a Special Issue of Nutrients.

We hope to see you in the vibrant and exciting city of Barcelona in September 2019.

The BioTech Pharma Summit: Gut-Brain Axis 2018 will be dedicated to help large pharma, biotech, academics and clinicians unearth the intricacies of the GBA in demonstrating disease causation, and apply these findings within a clinical setting.


8–10 August 2018 5th International Vitamin Conference

Sydney, Australia

The 5th International Vitamin Conference will be held at the InterContinental Hotel, Sydney from 8 – 10 August 2018 and is aimed at vitamin researchers in the world especially chemists, geneticists, nutritionists, dietitians, epidemiologists, clinicians, food scientists and physiologists with the theme being ‘Vitamins and well-being from womb to tomb’.

The conference will recognise the importance of vitamins both water and fat soluble in human health. It is over a hundred years since the discovery of vitamins when it was a major scientific achievement in our understanding of health and disease. In 1912, Casimir Funk originally coined the term “vitamine”. We stopped discovering more vitamins by the mid-twentieth century rather trying to understand the ones discovered till today. Every vitamin studied since to understand properties and functions in health and disease was a result of work done by epidemiologists, physicians, physiologists, and chemists. Clinicians soon recognized scurvy, beriberi, rickets, pellagra, and xerophthalmia as specific vitamin deficiencies, rather than diseases due to infections or toxins.

This conference will bring several vitamin researchers from across the world to Sydney Australia for the very first time to present the latest research in the field and provide a lot of opportunities to network and collaborate.

The PROMO CODE – EARLYSPECIAL can be used for the discounted price.


12–13 June 2018 Healthy Ageing APAC Summit

Hilton Singapore

Join us at the inaugural Healthy Ageing APAC Summit. Organised by the publishers of FoodNavigator-Asia.com and NutraIngredients-Asia.com, the number one daily news service for the food and supplements industry, the Healthy Ageing APAC Summit focuses on nutrition and food solutions to meet Asia-Pacific’s population challenges

The Asia-Pacific region is currently home to about 60 percent of the world’s population of older people, defined as those aged 60 years or older. The number of older persons in the region is expected to more than double from 547 million in 2016 to nearly 1.3 billion by 2050.

This means the demand for nutrition and food products suitable for the elderly population will soar, while younger people are increasingly aware that the nutrition and health choices they make today will affect their quality of life in older age.

This event will look at how the nutrition and food industry can meet the needs of the rapidly ageing populations of today, and more crucially, tomorrow.

3–4 April 2017 Probiotics Congress: Europe

Amsterdam, The Netherlands


An increasing awareness of the importance of the role different bacterial ecosystems play with regards to human health has led to a surge in research, publications and companies in the microbiome and probiotic space. As changes in our lifestyle and the growth of multi-drug resistant bacterial strains have also increased the need for better solutions and management of chronic and life-threatening illnesses, microbiome and probiotic research is one of the most scientifically important and potentially lucrative avenues to be exploring. There is mounting evidence that selected probiotic strains can confer health benefits to us, especially with regards to digestive diseases and pediatric health. Further research into mechanisms of action for particular strains, large-cohort clinical trials, and compliance with good manufacturing practice and standards will result in the next generation of probiotic products to ultimately advance both patient and animal care.

As part of our worldwide microbiome series we are co-locating the European Probiotics Congress with the 4th European Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum. Both events will be held on April 3-4, 2017 at the historic Beurs van Berlage Conference Centre in central Amsterdam.

Last year’s successful event attracted over 200 attendees.

Recognised around the world, as the leading conferences for bringing together Pharma, Biotech, Academic Institutions and investors who are partnering together to develop and progress ground-breaking microbiome research into commercially viable products. The 2017 congress is not one to miss.

Developments in the field of metagenomics have allowed researchers to explore the diverse microbiota in the human body. Research has shown that the microbiome is linked to natural immunity, metabolism, behavioural traits, and broadly speaking, plays an instrumental role in health and disease. With large-scale collaborative projects underway and sequencing data placed in the public domain, there is a rich source of information for researchers and companies looking for opportunities in this exciting field. Increasingly, there are indications that the human microbiome is key to curative and preventative medicine so efforts are being focused on expanding investment opportunities, performing more clinical trials and spurring innovative research in this area. Coupled with an increasing focus on healthy living and a therapeutics market that is expected to grow to $1.2 trillion by 2016, microbiome research is set to make waves in the science and medical world through its application in preventative treatments, cures, therapies and supplements.

2015 is an important year for all of us. We are taking stock of the accomplishments based on the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were adopted in the year 2000. The results of these efforts are immensely positive. In most countries around the globe, extreme poverty and hunger have been reduced, and infant, child, and maternal mortality have decreased. Girls have better access to primary schooling, progress has been made in slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, access to safe drinking water and sanitation has improved, and more information and knowledge is available to more people via the internet than ever before. However, not all goals have been achieved and some regions have benefitted less, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.

The period marked by the MDGs will end in December 2015. As part of the post-2015 development agenda, the international community is working intensely on a new set of goals, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be adopted at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in the second half of September 2015. The new set of goals, despite their similarity in some aspects, go beyond the MDGs in that (a) the formulation and focus of the goals are more encompassing, explicitly requiring active participation from wealthy and poor nations alike, and that (b) the overall focus is shifting away from ameliorating the situation of poor and underdeveloped regions and societies toward improving the sustainability of global economic and social development while concurrently protecting the environment.
