IPA will be parachuting (Amtrak actually) into the Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum/Probiotics Congress 2017 in San Diego this week. The collaboration, part of a world microbiome series presented by Global Engage, grows bigger each year.

More than 400 will converge on San Diego to hear 70 some speakers discuss the latest research and developments as well as engage in panel discussions. Somewhat unique to this convocation is the business/tech/basic science meetup potential.
