October 24-28, 2020
It is our immense pleasure to invite you to join the 21st. conference of the International Society for Research on Human Milk and Lactation! After an extended period during which a small virus forced us to meet online only, we are extremely excited to come together again at a physical meeting to share and discuss the latest research findings in this rapidly moving field of multidisciplinary science. However, we will also capitalize on the learnings during the last couple of years and offer state of the art hybrid access for those who prefer to join the meeting and discussions from home.
The research conference will include interactive workshops on hot topics on the field, invited presentations by outstanding speakers presenting the latest research relating to human milk and lactation, plenty of abstract and poster presentations, and lots of space to meet, network and discuss. Special sessions will be devoted to trainees and new investigators. The conference will provide perfect opportunities to meet and link with colleagues actively working in this exciting research area from all over the world.
