This online-only meeting report presents “Probiotics: From Bench to Market”, a one-day conference convened by the New York Academy of Sciences on June 11, 2010 with the goal of stimulating discussion of the physiological effects of probiotics in the gastrointestinal, nervous, and immune systems. The program included speakers from academia, industry, and government to give conference participants a full understanding of the state of the field of probiotics. The overall goal of the program was to increase communication and collaboration among these groups to advance probiotic research and probiotic contributions to public health. The conference was broken into three sessions and included both oral and poster presentations as well as panel discussions.
