Prebiotics in the spotlight at 11th Microbiome & Probiotics R&D and Business Collaboration Forum

Clasado has announced that R&D Director, Dr Lucien Harthoorn, will take to the stage as a speaker at the 11thMicrobiome & Probiotics R&D and Business Collaboration Forum. 

The prestigious event takes place 23rd -24th May 2023 at the Rotterdam World Trade Centre, The Netherlands. A highlight of the microbiome science calendar, the forum brings together academic, industry and investment leaders to share the latest scientific developments in microbiome research. 

For this event, Dr Harthoorn will present ‘The Gut Microbiome and its relation to Health and Wellbeing: the Role of Prebiotics’. The talk explores current understanding of the connections between the gut microbiome and wellbeing, as well as the potential role of prebiotics in future healthcare strategies. Forming part of the event’s experienced roster of speakers, Dr Harthoorn’s talk will take place on Wednesday 24th May at 14:55 (CET).

Dr Harthoorn comments: “One of the most interesting aspects of gut microbiome science is the dynamics between academic focus to a commercial prospect, and in turn, how research has the potential to affect public health on a global scale. Prebiotics in particular, which nourish beneficial bacteria in the gut, show a great deal of potential in modulating gut microbiome related health, so could there be a more focused role for prebiotic fibre in health strategies? That’s what we’ll be discussing alongside sharing insights at the 11thMicrobiome & Probiotics R&D and Business Collaboration Forum.

“As the developer of Bimuno® GOS, the most studied galactooligosaccharide ingredient available for commercial use, we have fantastic perspective on the science of prebiotics and what it tells us about the gut microbiome-health relationship. It’s clear that better health starts with a well-supported gut microbiome, and we look forward to putting prebiotics in the spotlight.”
