Why Attend

The Global Probiotics in Animal Feed Market is poised to grow at a CAGR of around 7.9% over the next decade to reach approximately $6.37 billion by 2025.

The European Animal Microbiome Congress brings together leading veterinary researchers, innovative biotechnology companies, feed and strain manufacturers, animal breeders and producers, animal pharmaceutical companies, regulatory bodies, and cutting-edge solution providers to showcase the latest commercially viable research focusing on manipulating the animal microbiome, form successful product development strategies, and facilitate collaborations and business partnering.

Techniques and products that manipulate the animal microbiome are set to be the next frontier in superior disease therapeutics, diagnostics, and nutrition in livestock, companion animals, and aquaculture. This conference will showcase unpublished data, new technologies, and translational case studies presented by leading academic and industry experts.

In 1997, John moved to Edinburgh where he applied computer models to study the evolution of complement control proteins with Dr Paul Barlow. With the emergence of high throughput sequencing, John then led the bioinformatics efforts associated with the parasitic nematode expressed sequence tag project, responsible for the processing and curation of sequence data from 30 species of parasitic nematodes. John was recruited to the Hospital for Sick Children in 2003 and was promoted to Senior Scientist in 2009. He holds cross-appointments in both the departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at the University of Toronto. Current lab interests center on the role of the microbiome in health and disease as well as the mechanisms that allow  pathogens and parasites to survive and persist in their human hosts.  Key to this research is the integration of computational systems biology analyses with comparative genomics to explore the evolution and operation of microbial pathways driving pathogenesis. Findings from our research programs are helping guide new strategies for therapeutic intervention.
