Date: 20th June 2016
Place: Marriott Hotel, Budapest
The Workshop will start at 13:00

The workshop will focus on current advances in the research of human milk oligosaccharides. Further the role of HMOs in maintaining health and preventing disease will be discussed by leading scientists.

Chaired by:  David A. Mills,  Peter J. Shields Endowed Chair in Dairy Food Science, Department of Food Science and Technology, University of California, Davis, USA

Who to come: Scientists, researchers, medical doctors, gastro-enterologists, immunologists, paediatricians, neonatologists, nutritionists, dairy science specialists, clinical studies managers, technical supports, principal investigators etc.

Why to come: Get an update on  how can we restore the gut microbiota to good shape.   You may also learn latest updates about the  human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), found uniquely in human breast milk, helping to establish the commensal bacteria in babies which prevent the attachment of microbial pathogens to mucosal surfaces. In addition, recent studies suggesting that HMOs have unique functions as immune regulators will be discussed .
