Our Past Events

Digestive Health and Wellbeing: The Patient Journey

On February 4th, Bimuno and The Functional Gut Clinic co-hosted an educational event, ‘Digestive Health & Wellbeing: The Patient Journey’. The event highlighted the importance of understanding patient diagnosis, treatment and challenges faced at each stage of the patient journey from the clinician’s perspective.

Our virtual event pulled together the stages of the patient referral process to show how clinicians can work together to prevent and treat gastrointestinal issues from the perspectives of clinicians and researchers. The morning sessions featured areas including dietetic, primary, secondary and tertiary care. The afternoon sessions built on this with a focus on the gut microbiome, its relationship to physical health, including immune function, athletic health and performance and the role of prebiotics and probiotics.

The online event featured a diverse panel of speakers to help healthcare professionals build a stronger understanding of how a focus on improving gut health can impact today’s health landscape:

Spring Conference 2021: Gut microbiome and health

We are proud to be sponsoring the Spring Conference 2021: Gut microbiome and health. The conference will be presenting the latest advancements in gut microbiome and health research. It will bring together experts who are driving technological advancements and striving to understand how nutrition impacts gut microbiome and the interactions between gut microbiome and health.

The gastrointestinal tract is amongst the most densely populated ecosystems on earth, home to an abundant and diverse collection of microbial species, not just bacteria but also Archaea, viruses, fungi etc. Studies have drawn links between host nutrition, the gut microbiota and metabolic and immune functions, which in consequence affect physiology.
