Welcome Message

It is a great honour for Thailand to host the 11th ACLAB which will be held on 29th - 31st October 2020 at the Sukosol, Bangkok. This year’s theme, “LAB for healthier longer better life”, focuses on an important aspect of lactic acid bacteria on the health of both human and animals. Famous scientists in this area from around the globe have agreed to be present at this conference as keynote and invited speakers. We are confident that this conference will be rewarding for all participants and will, once again, provide an opportunity to promote communication among academics, researchers, and industrialists who are interested in working on lactic acid bacteria. We wish the 11th ACLAB to be an opportunity not only for sharing ideas and experiences but also for establishing and extending friendships among scientists with common interests from all over the world.

We look forward to welcoming you all to Bangkok and the 11th ACLAB!
