Sponsorship Packages

INTRODUCTION

We offer you a sponsorship opportunity for the 9th International Human Microbiome Consortium (IHMC) Congress 2022 to be held in Kobe, Japan, on behalf of the IHMC Congress Organizing Committee. The first IHMC Congress was held in 2008 at the early stages of the microbiome field, and it is now recognized as the premier microbiome meeting in the world. Over the years, IHMC has been continuously growing because of the scientific and financial contributions made by our fellow industries. For the upcoming IHMC Congress, we would like to respect and continue the institutional tradition of wonderful industry partnerships.
