Featuring presenters and experts from across the globe, this conference has been specifically designed to explore the role that mycobacteria, particularly Mycobacterium avium spp. paratuberculosis (
MAP), may play in Crohn’s disease, Type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis and other chronic conditions.
