The Annual Symposium is our flagship conference that features scientific research related to milk science for health. The Symposium is instrumental in building a collaborative, multi-disciplinary, pre-competitive platform for scientific discoveries of the structures, functions, actions, and benefits of lactation and milk and to facilitate the translation of that knowledge into practice for health.
The Symposium connects the global community of scientists working across a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines from chemistry, nutrition, immunology, microbiology, comparative biology, lactation physiology, medicine, computational biology, bioinformatics, and artificial intelligence, to address some of the major challenges to health.
The symposium location alternates between UC Davis and a different location worldwide and facilitates collaboration among scientists and innovators to accelerate scientific advancements and identify actionable opportunities.
The target audience includes scientists, innovators, clinicians, trainees, and students from academic, industry, non-profit, and government environments, around the world and across all scientific disciplines to solve challenges in the field. The Symposium targets hundreds of registrants from all over the world to foster cross-cutting discussion and collaboration.
