10th International Symposium on Milk Genomics and Human Health

The 10th International Symposium on Milk Genomics and Human Health- October 1-3, 2013.



Join us October 1-3, 2013 in Davis, California to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the International Symposium on Milk Genomics and Human Health.  This year’s theme is Milk Leading Life Sciences Research in the 21st Century.

The venue for this year’s event is the U.C. Davis Conference Center located on the University of California, Davis campus in the United States.


The three day event is organized by the IMGC in collaboration with the University of California, Davis, Foods for Health Institute, and local organizing committee in California. It will bring together international experts in nutrition, genomics, bioinformatics and milk research to discuss and share the latest research.

The Annual Symposium is our flagship event that features scientific research related to milk and human health done throughout the world. The symposium draws from the diversity of its memberships to cover the breath of genomics themes that reflect the interest of the Consortium.  The goal of the Consortium is to bring together the research and dairy communities to share, translate, and interpret data that are happening within the fields of the “-omics” science.

The program includes the milk-intestine relationship, from absorption to protection, hot new topics in milk research, milk genomics breakthroughs over the past 10 years, milk composition and human health, and human milk diversity.
