We are working on the program for the IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas 2022, so please check back here as we will be updating this on a regular basis.

The 2022 IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas will feature world-leading experts to present the latest scientific, technical and market insights, and opens with presentations about the potential impact of probiotics on COVID-19 outcomes, including impressive data from Mexico on how a combination of probiotics may positively impact COVID-19 out patients, presented by Pedro Gutiérrez Castrellón, MD from the Hospital General Dr Manuel Gea Gonzalez and the International Scientific Council for Probiotas in Mexico City.

Day 2 will kick off with a deep dive into the e-commerce markets across the Americas with Ewa Hudson, from Lumina Intelligence, and will be followed by the session, “Microbiome modulation to improve sleep and manage stress”, which features Monika Fleshner, PhD from the University of Colorado and Julia Rode from Örebro University in Sweden.

The afternoon of Day 2 includes our Tech Showcase session featuring presentations by Giulio Maria Pasinetti, MD, PhDIcahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (machine learning to create novel probiotic formulations), María Eugenia Inda, PhD, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Ingestible bacterial-electronic systems to monitor gastrointestinal health), Seung-min Park, PhD, Stanford University School of Medicine (A Smart Toilet system for personalized health monitoring), and Vincent Thomas, PhD, BioAster (Species-targeted sorting and cultivation of commensal bacteria from the gut microbiome using flow cytometry).

Day 3 will feature updates from the regulatory field, including Betsy Jean Yakes, PhD, from the Office of Dietary Supplement Programs at the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and Serena Viswanathan from the Federal Trade Commission. The program will also feature tips and tricks on working with influencers to communicate with consumers, insights from leading start-ups, and our Future Focus panel, which asks “Where Next for the Industry?”
