Only 1 Day Left to Register at the Regular Rate

Register by 30 September at 11:59 PM US CDT for the WAO Symposium on Food Allergy and the Microbiome, 5-6 December, to take part of this unique opportunity to connect and learn in a small setting about food allergy and the microbiome.

Microbiome Sessions You Will Want to Attend

The Microbiome Track sessions will address more specific topics within the field of the Mirobiome, providing the opportunity for in-depth and detailed exploration. Discussion among participants will be encouraged.

The Microbiome Tracks will include topics such as:

Speaker Highlights

Ruby Pawankar, MD, Ph.D, FRCP, FAAAAI , Div of Allergy, Department of Pediatrics, Nippon Medical School, Tokyo, Japan

What are you looking forward to at the WAO 2015 Symposium?
I look forward to sharing knowledge, exchanging information and learning about the most exciting topics of food allergy and microbiome both of which are currently very important areas of clinical and research interest. I also look forward to meeting friends and making new ones.

What sets the WAO 2015 Symposium apart from other meetings?
As in the case of the first WAO Symposium in 2013 on 'Immunotherapy and Biologics', the WAO 2015 Symposium focuses on two important topics: 'Food allergy and the Microbiome' and covers in-depth information that is useful to clinicians, researchers and fellows-in-training. The limited size of the meeting also allows for more interaction.

What makes this theme unique and important in the allergy/immunology community?
The prevalence of food allergies is increasing and the need for better dissemination of knowledge on the diagnosis, treatment and future therapies is crucial. The human microbiome in health and disease is becoming increasingly important in order to understand the origins of disease and also interventional treatment strategies.

Prof Pawankar's track will cover aspects on the role of the gut microbiome and systemic disease and the role of microbiome on early, as well as late onset allergic airway diseases.
