Microbiome Connect

Translating microbiome research into commercial applications

Who We Are

Microbiome Connect is an event series dedicated to showcasing the leading drug development and consumer product platforms applying live microbial consortia, engineered microbes, and microbial-derived metabolites to improve the health and wellness of patients and consumers.

Hosting audiences of executive decision-makers, from biotech, academia and service providers, these conferences in this series look specifically at the growing scientific understanding of the compositional and functional dynamics of the human microbiome, and how this insight is enabling innovative efforts to develop microbe-derived products that can prevent and treat various health disorders and diseases.

Attending these industry-leading conferences you will have the opportunity to meet pioneering companies developing robust, scalable, and reproducible formulations and processes for live biotherapeutics entering late clinical investigations, advanced product development and reaching for the clinic or the consumer market across the field.


Microbiome Connect unites industry leaders in microbiome-based products to share insights, inspire ideas and build new partnerships to address unmet medical needs. Since 2015 Microbiome Connect has been the meeting point for the microbiome community. Our event platform has brought together over 5,500 microbiome professionals across 3 continents and our online community is made up of over 35,000 engaged microbiome professionals.
