Obesity, Satiety, and Metabolism
Pre-Congress Meeting at the EASO 17th European Congress on Obesity 2009
5 May 2009, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
This meeting was held on 5 May from 17.00 to 21.00. A series of top scientists presented on the range of obesity related work currently underway at ILSI Europe, culminating in a call for further collaboration amongst the diverse groups involved. Q & A time followed and the evening wrapped up with complimentary wine and canapés and a chance to chat informally.
The ILSI Europe work programme on obesity, satiety and related metabolic disorders mirrors the range of dimensions of obesity covered by the EASO 17th European Congress on Obesity 2009. When addressing the breadth of obesity issues, ILSI Europe has the capacity to coordinate work on many different levels, from the physiology of appetite to metabolic dysfunction and psycho-socio parameters of obesity.
ILSI Europe is unique in providing a forum for food safety and nutrition scientists, the food industry and regulators to come together to not only discuss the science and how and where future research opportunities exist but to also address how to apply the science in terms of, for example, evaluating best practice methodologies and validation criteria for biomarkers which all contribute to the process of scientific substantiation.
The goal of this seminar is to communicate the latest outputs from ILSI Europe on the obesity related topics and to foster further cross collaboration. We are committed to tackling obesity and associated disorders from a multi-disciplinary perspective and this integrated session aimed to build new networks to support further multi-stakeholder support and collaborations.
