Symposium Proceedings

The Annual International Symposium on Milk Science and Health is our flagship conference that features scientific research related to lactation, milk and dairy 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.

Held every year at a different location world-wide, the symposium facilitates collaboration among scientists and innovators to accelerate scientific advancements and identify actionable opportunities.

The target audience is scientists and innovators from academic, industry, non-profit and government environments, as well as all others active in the area of lactation, milk and dairy. The Symposium targets hundreds of registrants from all over the world to foster cross-cutting discussion and collaboration.
