To make us who we are, food must agree with the gut and the brain. This venue for scientific gut-brain dialogue is Gastronauts
When a behavioral neuroscientist sits with a synthetic biologist for breakfast, one can envision a witty probiotic designed to tame our cravings.
At our Global event, the table will be served with fine ideas carefully nourished in laboratories around the world. Guts in space, mind bending gut surgery, guts on a chip, and self-medicating chimps are just a few of the topics to be delivered by our carefully curated list of scientists.
This virtual event will include six stellar scientific sessions of two hours each with a total of 30 speakers culminating in more than 720 minutes of solid intellectual fun!
Each session will be hosted live from one of six global locations: Adelaide – Australia, Doha – Qatar, Durham – USA, London – UK, Nantes – France, and Porto Alegre – Brazil.
Join us in as we travel the world, May 11-13, 2021.
