The Nutrition Society Summer Conference – TECA, Aberdeen
July 13 - July 16
Dietary proteins are essential for growth and repair of the body, and maintenance of good health. While animal products are major dietary sources of protein, livestock farming has a significant environmental impact, and adaptations are required to move towards a more sustainable society.
The meeting will highlight recent developments in the field and areas of continued debate. It is structured around six symposia and will explore various aspects related to the physiological determinants for protein requirements, protein nutrition and ageing, metabolic health and disease, appetite control and weight management, novel methods for assessing protein metabolism and protein sources and their impact on environment and sustainability.
