Mini-symposium on Lipids in a Developmental Perspective IS CANCELLED
07.09.2010: We are sorry, but this symposium has been cancelled due to few registered participants. However, a new seminar on this topic will be scheduled. Please visit us here later, for information on a new date.
Invitation and call for abstracts
November 8. - 9. 2010.
Dietary fatty acids modulate the health prognosis of vertebrates. Importantly, these changes are often initiated during development. This mini-symposium aims to present established and new knowledge on the impact of various lipids in health and disease, with special focus on developmental processes.
On behalf of Lipidforum, the organizing committee from NIFES would like to invite you to two exciting days close to the famous fjords of Norway at Solstrand Hotel outside Bergen. We expect to gather people from both research and industry to an international and interdisciplinary meeting.
Key note speakers:
Gérard Ailhaud, Full Professor
Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis
Ailhaud has made important contributions to the characterization of adipose precursor cells as well as the role of adipogenic hormones and fatty acids in the process of adipose cell differentiation and tissue development.
Bruce A. Watkins, Professor and Director
Biosciences and Nutrition
Lipid Chemistry and Molecular Biology Laboratory
Watkins’ work focuses on interactions of flavonoids and fatty acids on prostanoids and growth factors in muscle and bone metabolism and aims to describe the actions of nutrients on the actions of agonists on endocannabinoid receptors in muscle and bone.
Sheila M. Innis, Professor and Director
Nutrition & Metabolism Research Program, CFRI
Department of Pediatrics
University of British Columbia
Innis has been working in the research areas of nutrition and metabolism, particularly fatty acids and methyl metabolism in growth and development, including maternal, infant and child nutrition, and disease
A complete programme will be available in the beginning of September.
Dr. Tormod Bjørkkjær (Seafood and Health)
Dr. Trond Brattelid (Seafood Safety)
Dr. Mari Moren (Aquaculture Nutrition)
