Emeran Mayer, World-Renowned Gastroenterologist and Neuroscientist, to Deliver Keynote Address at 4th Annual Translational Microbiome Conference

MINNEAPOLIS, November 16, 2017– Dr. Emeran Mayer will deliver the keynote address at the 4th Annual Translational Microbiome Conference. Dr Mayer is a pioneer in researching brain-body interactions, focusing especially on brain-gut interactions in relation to health and disease. Besides being a widely recognized expert for functional GI disorders, he is also recognized as one of the leading investigators in the world of chronic visceral pain and of the brain-gut axis. Dr. Mayer’s keynote speech is closed to the public but open to registered conference attendees. The conference, which will be hosted by Arrowhead Publishers April 18-20 at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf, provides insight and collaboration opportunities between scientists at the forefront of microbiome research and pioneering companies investing to apply microbiome-based findings to innovate medical solutions.

“Not only is Dr. Mayer a leader in microbiome research,” said John Waslif, Managing Director of Arrowhead Publishers. “His career of investigative research has uncovered such pivotal findings that entire bodies of work are growing from that rich foundation. We are fortunate to hear firsthand about his newest research in April.”

A prolific research author, Dr. Mayer has published 210 original manuscripts in leading GI and Neuroscience journals, and 95 book chapters and reviews, has co-edited three books, and serves as Associate Editor of Gastroenterology. He is director of the Gail and Gerald Oppenheimer Family Center for Neurobiology of Stress. Having served as president of the Functional Brain Gut group, he is also a regular member of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases’ Clinical, Integrative and Molecular Gastroenterology study section. Dr. Mayer is currently engaged in research on sex differences in functional GI disorders, brain-bladder interactions, and brain imaging in IBS.

Just as Dr. Mayer’s findings span several medical specialties, his and other recent discoveries illustrate the many essential roles the human microbiome plays within the human ecosystem, and scientists are discovering specific variables within the microbiome that can profoundly impact a variety of conditions and diseases. To align with these findings and support exploration of translational applications, conference topics are broadly applicable, spanning multiple disease states, including oncology and dermatology, as well as inflammatory, cognitive and digestive disorders. In addition to Dr. Mayer’s keynote, progress from other groundbreaking researchers will be shared in conference sessions, and poster board presentations will offer direct access to discuss recent findings and current studies of key interest to the microbiome discussion.

The Translational Microbiome Conference will focus and build upon the challenges and hurdles that companies working in the microbiome space will have to recognize and navigate in order to successfully commercialize their products. Research in the microbiome represents tremendous potential to provide more effective therapies and supplements, and as investment opportunities are growing in this area, many companies are rapidly pursuing potential translational work. Sharing key learnings in this space can lend greater efficiency to the development and availability of new pharmaceutical offerings, and sessions will offer insight to how innovative companies are meeting challenges head-on to apply recent discoveries to a variety of disease processes.

Additional speakers for the 2018 Translational Microbiome Conference will be announced soon, and further information about the conference can be found at
