The Yakult Science Team exhibit at a variety of healthcare and science related conferences, all across the UK and Ireland.
Here you can find events that we will be attending. If you're there too, come over and find out more about our latest resources and information, or even just say hello!
We know how important it is for healthcare professionals to maintain up to date knowledge, and appreciate the restrictions on finding time and funding to attend conferences, so the Science Team can provide workplace talks to share research updates in the field of the microbiota.
01/03/19 Early life is often considered a window of opportunity for optimising the commensal gut microbiota to support host health. Here we look at recent studies, conducted in mice, suggesting that early colonisation may follow a “first-come, first served” pattern.Read more

13/04/18 For a while it has been said, in both scientific and non-scientific literature, that we are only 10% human, and bacteria make up the other 90% of cells in our bodies. Within the last couple of years, researchers have looked into this further to see if human cells really are outnumbered 10-fold by bacteria...Read more
