It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 3rd Annual Conference of Women & their Microbes, on Friday June 2nd, 2017 at De Nieuwe Liefde in Amsterdam. 

The theme for 2017 is External Influences on the Female Microbiomes. This year's program offers 8 high-quality keynote lectures on 8 unique female microbiomes, including the oral cavity, skin, breast, gut, bladder, vagina, estrobiome, and the elusive male factor, the penile microbiome. Specific emphasis will be given to how external factors (such as toothpaste, crèmes, antibiotics, tampons, stress, probiotics, and sexual intercourse) affect the stability of these niches, health implications, and practical strategies to enhance health and reduce disease risk. Although the keynote lectures are invitation-only, there are opportunities for you to briefly present your work at our Ignite Talks (see below). 

Conference highlights include:

  • Unique Conference: Only conference in the world to maintain this combinatorial viewpoint on an international scientific platform.
  • Cutting-Edge Content: Understanding how external factors influence eight female-specific microbiomes and their implication for women's health. 
  • Quality Program: We offer a program packed with a mix of top level scientific experts.
  • Ignite talks: We provide the opportunity to 10 attendees (academics, MDs and/or industry) to put the spotlights on their research by presenting 3 slides in 3 minutes. If you are up for this     challenge, submit your abstract! 
  • Relevance: Expect to walk away at minimum with an excellent overview of the varied role of microbes in women's health and what practical strategies are available to enhance health. Whether you're a clinician, academic, scientist, student, administrator, or just a women's health enthusiast – join us to help improve care for women!

Register to reserve your spot. More details can be found on the website including a special student rate. Registration fee includes:

  • Full day of presentations
  • Warm lunch, coffee breaks, and drinks reception

As more research continues to highlight the role of microbes in women’s health, the relevance of this unique scientific conference and research community becomes all the more essential. Please forward this invitation to any of your colleagues that might be interested.
