 ​Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the First International Conference World of Microbiome: Pregnancy, Birth and Infancy (WoMPBI 2019), set to take place in Milan, on 31 October – 02 November 2019.

Changing microbiota in pregnancy has profound effects on fetal, neonatal and infant health & development as well as on maternal health. Be a part of new breakthroughs which will better predict and treat diseases in fetuses and infants. Join international colleagues at the first conference that brings together professionals across microbiology, immunology, ob-gyn, neonatology, pediatrics and industry, to push forward this emerging area in microbiome.

This event is a unique meeting that brings together experts to advance scientific knowledge about microbiome in pregnancy and neonatal, interpret recent research and analyze real-world case-studies. The inaugural conference aims to promote collaboration between researchers, clinicians and industry and help them overcome barriers that limit access to prevention, care and services. Whether you are a scientist, clinical researcher, part of a start-up or an established industry company, WoMPBI 2019 is your opportunity to network and discuss the latest findings and their potential impact with the pioneers.

See you in Milan!
