Join us at the inaugural Healthy Ageing APAC Summit. Organised by the publishers of FoodNavigator-Asia.com and NutraIngredients-Asia.com, the number one daily news service for the food and supplements industry, the Healthy Ageing APAC Summit focuses on nutrition and food solutions to meet Asia-Pacific’s population challenges
The Asia-Pacific region is currently home to about 60 percent of the world’s population of older people, defined as those aged 60 years or older. The number of older persons in the region is expected to more than double from 547 million in 2016 to nearly 1.3 billion by 2050.
This means the demand for nutrition and food products suitable for the elderly population will soar, while younger people are increasingly aware that the nutrition and health choices they make today will affect their quality of life in older age.
This event will look at how the nutrition and food industry can meet the needs of the rapidly ageing populations of today, and more crucially, tomorrow.
The 5th International Vitamin Conference will be held at the InterContinental Hotel, Sydney from 8 – 10 August 2018 and is aimed at vitamin researchers in the world especially chemists, geneticists, nutritionists, dietitians, epidemiologists, clinicians, food scientists and physiologists with the theme being ‘Vitamins and well-being from womb to tomb’.
The conference will recognise the importance of vitamins both water and fat soluble in human health. It is over a hundred years since the discovery of vitamins when it was a major scientific achievement in our understanding of health and disease. In 1912, Casimir Funk originally coined the term “vitamine”. We stopped discovering more vitamins by the mid-twentieth century rather trying to understand the ones discovered till today. Every vitamin studied since to understand properties and functions in health and disease was a result of work done by epidemiologists, physicians, physiologists, and chemists. Clinicians soon recognized scurvy, beriberi, rickets, pellagra, and xerophthalmia as specific vitamin deficiencies, rather than diseases due to infections or toxins.
This conference will bring several vitamin researchers from across the world to Sydney Australia for the very first time to present the latest research in the field and provide a lot of opportunities to network and collaborate.
On 6 & 7 September 2018, Paris will host the BioTech Pharma Summit: Gut-Brain Axis 2018 conference. This year’s event brings together leading scientists, physicians, and senior leaders to explore the human immune system and its engagement with the GI-nervous system axis in health and disease.
The ability of gut microbiota to communicate with the brain is emerging as an exciting concept in health and disease. Mounting evidence, mostly from rodent studies, suggests that gut microbes help shape normal neural development, brain biochemistry, and behaviour.
The BioTech Pharma Summit: Gut-Brain Axis 2018 will be dedicated to help large pharma, biotech, academics and clinicians unearth the intricacies of the GBA in demonstrating disease causation, and apply these findings within a clinical setting.
