The virtual meeting’s main themes will address the complex interplay between dietary nutrients and outcomes associated with the microbiome, infection, and inflammation in the context of health and disease.
Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
Diet, Microbiome, and Immunity During Infancy
Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Immune Health
Nutritional Immunity: The Battle for Nutrients Between Host and Bacteria
Obesity: Impacts on Innate and Adaptive Immunity
Diet and Infection in the Age of COVID

The conference covers nine sessions with 10 selected abstracts for short talks, and a “Meet the Expert” session in a speed-dating format, to allow engagement between junior and senior investigators. We are delighted to have Nicole Baumgarth, PhD, DVM (University of California, Davis) present the keynote lecture.
