Abstract Submission Closes in 7 Days

Submit Your Abstract by 14 August 2015

Your abstract will be considered for inclusion in one of the most focused scientific programs in food allergy and the microbiome.

Regular Registration Deadline is 30 September 2015

Interact with colleagues and exchange ideas in a warm and friendly setting about clinical and research aspects of allergy medicine during the WAO Sympoisum on Food Allergy and the Microbiome, 5 -6 December 2015 in Miami, FL, USA.

Speaker Highlights

Harald Renz, MD, Institute of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiochemistry, Molecular Diagnostics, Philipps University Marburg, University Hospital Giessen and Marburg Gmbh, Germany

What makes food allergy and the microbiome important in the allergy/immunology community?
"Food allergy is one of the emerging clinical areas in our discipline. Not only increasing prevalence, but also novel pathophysiological approaches and developments of prevention and therapy make this a “hot topic”."

Why attend the Microbiome Track: Description of the Microbiome: Evolution and Life Course?
"It is now very well established that the pre- and postnatal environment is one of the most important windows of opportunity during which our immune system is primed and educated. This process develops under close control by environmental factors, among them environmental and mucosal microbes have a profound impact. Therefore, the understanding of this interaction between the host, the microbes, and the environment is leading the pathway towards the development of novel therapeutic approaches. Epigenetics is the biochemical tool box which links environmental exposures to disease development."
