About The Event

On the 06 & 07 September 2018, Paris will host the BioTech Pharma Summit: Gut-Brain Axis 2018 conference. The event brings together leading scientists, physicians, and senior leaders to explore the brain and its engagement with the GI-nervous system in health and disease.
With 23+ expert speakers, 20+ case studies demonstrating the interactions between gut microbiota and brain in disorders of brain gut interactions.
The Gut-Brain Axis 2018 is set to be the fundamental meeting for anyone interested in unlocking the potential of the gut-brain axis, and translating it into safe, effective and commercially viable therapeutics.
The ability of gut microbiota to communicate with the brain is emerging as an exciting concept in health and disease. Mounting evidence, mostly from rodent studies, suggests that gut microbes help shape normal neural development, brain biochemistry, and behaviour.
The BioTech Pharma Summit: Gut-Brain Axis 2018 will be dedicated to help large pharma, biotech, academics and clinicians exploring and understand the GBA in health and disease.


Thursday and Friday
September 06 to 07, 2018
