Have you registered for the WAO Symposium yet?

Time is running out for Early Registration on 31 July!

"There are a number of meetings on the microbiome and they tend to take a very broad look at the field. This particular meeting focused on food allergy will allow for an in-depth bench to bedside evaluation of the field."

-Prof. Alan Landay

Register today to take advantage of this low price to this exceptional event in food allergy and the microbiome.

Submit Your Abstract by 14 August 2015

Present your research to the international allergy/immunology community and receive feedback from the field's leading experts.

Speaker Highlights

Alan Landay, PhD, Immunolgy/Microbiology, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL, USA

What do you like about attending WAO congresses and conferences?
Programs and conferences like the WAO provide exposure to new ways of evaluating research outcomes and discovery of novel ideas and tools to address chronic illnesses.

What are you looking forward to at the WAO 2015 Symposium?
As a new contributor to this event, I’m looking forward to networking opportunities with international experts; these opportunities offer valuable resources for sharing information that will lead to new collaborations and new research directions.

What makes the microbiome important in the allergy/immunology community?
We are just at the very beginning of understanding the role of the microbiome in health and disease. The field of food allergy offers a unique opportunity to evaluate the microbiome given the focus of this disease on the GI tract.

Prof Alan Landay's track will provide information on how chronic HIV disease modifies the host microbiome and inflammatory pathways. His session will provide an opportunity for researchers and clinicians from different fields to share information on the implications of these findings.

Attend the Microbiome Track of Prof Alan Landay:
Saturday, 5 December 2015
15:30 - 17:00
Microbiome Track 3: Mechanisms of Host and Microbiome Interaction: Implications in Health and Disease
"Pro-Inflammatory Distributions of the Microbiome in Chronic Disease: Cause or Effect?"
Recent Publication: Gut dendritic cell activation links an altered colonic microbiome to mucosal and systemic T-cell activation in untreated HIV-1 infection
