Welcome to the UK Probiotics Conference 2015 website. Royal Holloway, University of London are proud to present The UK Probiotics Conference 2015. Here you will find everything you need to know about the conference, the first of its kind to be held in the UK.

If you are considering attending this conference, you will already know that the field of probiotics has now expanded beyond all expectations over the last two decades. Ever-growing clinical and field data suggesting beneficial effects of probiotics in humans and animals has lead to the increase of related products on the market, from simple health food supplements to established brands. Underlying this is the growing awareness of the link between gut health and the intestinal flora.
The conference will be held over 2.5 days and will comprise of 5 or 6 themed sessions of 20-30 minute talks, a poster session including a 'best poster' award, networking breaks, a trade stand exhibition, meals, social events and entertainment. 3 nights en-suite campus accommodation is included in the registration fee. Please refer to the Full Schedule for more detail.
