A newly established scientific committee are set to assess cutting edge research for the Probiota 2015 Scientific Frontiers poster session. Don’t miss your chance to present as entries close on November 7.

The NutraIngredients and Probiota team are inviting abstract proposals from academic researchers and industry professionals in the areas of gut health ahead of Probiota 2015.

After a hugely successful reception at the 2014 event, we are again looking for abstracts presenting the latest state-of-the-art developments related to all aspects of prebiotic, probiotic and microbiome science relevant to health, wellbeing, consumers and industry.

All abstract submissions will be reviewed by the Probiota Scientific Committee​ - led by Professor Bob Rastall from the University of Reading, and made up of leading experts from the fields of pre- and probiotics. Successful abstracts will be presented as posters at the Probiota conference​ running from 3-5 February 2015 in Amsterdam. 

Posters will be judged on-site by the scientific committee and the winning poster authors will be invited to give a short presentation of their work to the Probiota audience.

Probiota 2015

NutraIngredients' Probiota is the leading annual event for the global pre & probiotics and microbiota focussed food and pharma industries. The 2015 event will explore the probiotic scientific frontier, its evolution and commercial application.

Join us in Amsterdam​ on 3-5 February where leading experts will present the latest scientific, technical and market insights, and business and academia from around the globe will come together to discuss innovation and growth in today’s market.  

Abstract call


Abstract proposals are welcomed from those engaged in all aspects of microbiome science in academia, industry and consumer health - particularly those representing successful academe-industry interactions.

Early-phase, novel, or state-of-the-art research or promising ideas covering the following topics are encouraged:

  • Host-microbe interactions in health and disease, including preclinical and clinical studies evaluating pre- and probiotic interventions.
  • Application and development of “-omics” approaches in biomarker discovery, including identification of potential pre- and probiotic strains. Research identifying strain-specific effects of probiotics for health and wellbeing, including mechanism of action and bioactive discovery and isolation.
  • Early findings from large scale research projects and clinical trials.
  • Innovations and novel ideas in the areas of production processes, delivery, formulation and shelf-life
  • Consumer and market insights, including population research, trends and threats, commercial packaging and marketing.

Where applicable the potential for commercial application of the research should be highlighted to support the Probiota aims of bridging the interface between academia and industry.

Abstract submission guidelines outlining the content and format of the abstract should be downloaded here​. Abstracts must be submitted no later than Friday 7 November 2014

Abstracts should be emailed to vasb@cebovbgnrirag.pbz​ Any questions about the abstract submission process or the poster session can be addressed to Dr Gemma Pearce​.
