Resveratrol and other anti-inflammatory compounds in human health

Date Monday, August 27, 2012, 09:00 - 18:00
Location Auditorium A2-70.03 (Marmorhallen, Thorvaldsensvej 40, stuen)
Organizers

Resveratrol and other anti-inflammatory compounds in human health workshop will focus on the biological effect of resveratrol and other naturally-occurring compounds of the human diet. The workshop brings a number of leading international profiles together to present and discuss the latest advances in resveratrol and other anti-inflammatory compounds on human health.

The workshop offers the opportunity to attend a two-day PhD course on 28-29 August highlighting this research. Our international speakers will also participate in this PhD school.

The purposes of the workshop and the following PhD course are:

  1. To collect scientists working in Denmark and to establish a platform for the scientific knowledge on the health effects of resveratrol and other naturally occurring anti-inflammatory compounds
  2. To train PhD students in the field of biological effects of resveratrol and other naturally occurring anti-inflammatory compound
  3. To communicate solid and scientifically-based knowledge on the health effects of resveratrol and other naturally occurring anti-inflammatory compounds

It is our hope that the workshop, by combining national and international experts in the field of health-promoting naturally-occurring compounds, will support our national research in this specific field, as well as enable exceptional training opportunities the young scientist. Because this subject receives great attention in the popular media, we will have a unique opportunity to distribute a scientifically valid message concerning the known effects of these compounds as well as to clarify some of the oversimplifications circulating in some media channels and found at several websites.

Topics and Speakers

Topics to be covered at the workshop:

  • Resveratrol and cancer prevention
  • Resveratrol and physical activity
  • Resveratrol and diabetes prevention
  • Resveratrol and bone structure
  • Resveratrol and inflammation
  • Resveratrol and inflammation in obese humans
  • And other forthcoming topics

The programme includes an opportunity for the press to meet the speakers, and a Science Dating session, for project brainstorming and partnering among all participants.

PhD Course

Resveratrol and other anti-inflammatory compounds in human health PhD course will focus on the biological effect of resveratrol and other naturally-occurring compounds of the human diet. Several leading scientists (international and Danish) in this field will present and discuss the latest advances in resveratrol and other anti-inflammatory compounds on human health.

Resveratrol receives great attention in the popular media, and the PhD course will also be a unique opportunity to get a scientifically valid message concerning the known effects of these compounds as well as to clarify some of the oversimplifications circulating in some media channels and found at several websites.

PhD Course content

The PhD course consists of the workshop on 27 August, Copenhagen, which is open for everybody, and a two-day session on 28-29 August, Roskilde, which is only for PhD students, their supervisors and the international speakers.
