Ri.MED Symposium 2024 “Nutrition, Microbiome & Metabolism”

The annual Ri.MED Scientific Symposium NUTRITION, MICROBIOME AND METABOLISM – A science based multidisciplinary Symposium to explore cutting-edge research and nutritional health – will be held on October 17th and 18th, 2024 in Palermo, Italy. This meeting will bring together a panel of internationally recognized researchers for a two-day meeting to address the future of health through food.

The meeting will begin with a moderated conversation open to food safety and food politics, to be held on October 17th at 10:30 AM in Palazzo Branciforte. Italian will be the official language of this session. Palazzo Branciforte is a unique place, combining identity and innovation. A place where history, archaeology, modern and contemporary art, books, and the great Italian culinary tradition come together.

The Scientific Symposium will be also held at Palazzo Branciforte starting on Thursday, October 17th at 2:30 PM and ending on Friday October 18th evening. English will be the official language. We will take a journey in three parts through the microbiome, immune system response and environmental factors. The symposium will delve into how modern science can establish a solid, dependable foundation in an area that has seen superficial popularization but is now ready to emerge as a leading scientific discipline, bridging the environmental influences on pathophysiology.
