The human microbiome has been linked to a number of conditions and diseases including diabetes, autism, anxiety and obesity. Other important roles of the human microbiome include programming the immune system, providing nutrients for cells and preventing colonisation by pathogens. Thus, the analysis and research of different microbial communities living inside or outside of the human body could be key to our health. To further address this hot topic, BIOPRO and their French partner BioValley France organise their 19th joint «Meet & Match» event, focusing on the «Microbiome». The virtual event takes place on Thursday, July 1, 2021.

Thematically, the focus of this networking event is on opportunities and possibilities in the field of microbiome research and analysis. Presentations from researchers, clinicians and industry will provide further insight into exciting projects featuring different therapeutic and diagnostic approaches.

Why participate?

The Meet & Match addresses research institutions, companies and start-ups – mainly from France and Baden-Württemberg – with an interest in methods, treatments and diseases linked to the human microbiome. The objective of the event is to establish new contacts, encourage participants to initiate cooperations or joint developments as well as to gain a better understanding of the microbiome's impact on human health.


The participation is free of charge. For organisational reasons, prior registration is requested. Therefore, please fill in the registration form (soon available here).

You will receive more information about the online platform prior to the event. Please note that the number of participants is limited.

We look forward to meet you online!
