Platinum Summit will bring together leading researchers and practitioners in both human and veterinary medicine to share innovative perspectives with the goal of advancing animal health, exploring the impact of nutrient therapy on patient outcomes and discussing exciting research related to the equine microbiome, metabolome, predictive bio-markers and the science of systems biology. The goal of Platinum Summit is to support the development of more targeted and timely treatments using a predictive, preventive and more personalized approach to medicine.
