WHAT is it all about
Clinicians, researchers and those with a general interest are invited to attend this exciting symposium with world renowned speakers investigating the microbiome in health and disease with a special focus on how microbiome abnormalities may underlie some types of Autism and how manipulating the microbiome may help elucidate mechanisms of this challenging disorder and pave a path towards new treatments for affected children.
