Aim

The aim of this yearly meeting is to provide a platform for junior scientist and PhD students to present new – unpublished- results of their scientific work. Subjects that fall within the scope of the meeting include nutritional epidemiology, and preclinical and clinical human nutrition research and molecular nutrition. In view of this multidisciplinary approach, the meeting provides an excellent opportunity for networking, inspiration and maintaining existing collaborations and friendships between Dutch nutrition science groups. Since the meeting is about sharing of knowledge, senior scientists active in nutritional science in the Netherlands are strongly encouraged to have one or more of their PhD student present their work at this meeting.

As new – unpublished – work will be presented during this meeting, no abstracts will be available or published, and we would like to kindly ask you not to disseminate (twitter, blogs) or record any of the results presented. The atmosphere of the meeting is sharing novel information in a secure setting.

The meeting will start on Thursday morning (~10 o‘clock), continues until Friday lunch time (~14 o’clock), and includes the ‘Foppe ten Hoor’ evening session on Thursday (20.00-22.00).

Content

The meeting is divided into several sessions consisting of a number of short presentations. These sessions are chaired by our junior colleagues. Examples of session topics from previous years include:  ‘energy balance and postprandial metabolism’, ‘proteins, lipids and cardiovascular disease’, ‘appetite and satiation’ , ‘protein metabolism’, ‘dietary patterns, diet quality and guidelines’, ‘clinical nutrition’, and ‘public health nutrition’. The session topics are based on the submissions received.

On Thursday afternoon, a keynote lecture will be presented by an internationally renowned scientist under the auspices of the young NAV.

Highlight of the meeting is the competition, on Thursday evening,  for the coveted Foppe ten Hoor award. Three talented young researchers nominated by the Foppe ten Hoor committee based on submitted abstract and CV will present and defend their research for  a critical audience. The winner will receive the prestigious Foppe ten Hoor award for young nutrition scientists. We specifically ask senior scientists to encourage their junior scientist to apply for the ‘Foppe ten Hoor’ young investigator award.

Presentations

The language of the meeting is English. Presentations should last 10 minutes, leaving 5 minutes for questions.
