This year’s speakers:

Sanne Boesveldt, PhD (WUR): “Ruiken en proeven in tijden van Corona”

Since the start of her PhD (2004, VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam, the Netherlands) Sanne has been active in the field of olfaction. Her group focusses on chemosensory signals, and how they interact with metabolic and cognitive factors, to decide If, What, and How much we eat. She combines behavioral, neurobiological and physiological measurements to unravel the key question of ‘why do we (over)eat?’. Within this framework, she works on two major research lines: I) the influence of odors on appetite regulation; II) chemosensory changes in clinical populations. By gaining insight in the functionality of chemosensory signals for human eating behavior, in health and disease, we can contribute to changing current eating behavior towards healthier and more rewarding food patterns, and improve quality of life.

Saskia Osendarp, PhD (WUR): “The impact of COVID-19 on malnutrition and the Standing Together for Nutrition Consortium”

Saskia Osendarp is a passionate, enthusiastic and results-oriented scientist with a PhD in international nutrition and almost twenty years of experience in international nutrition research, of which 8 years in public health where she lived and worked at the ICDDR,B in Bangladesh and 10 years in the private sector in a multinational food company. Her research expertise include the importance of micronutrients and essential fatty acids on health and development of infants and children as well as nutrition during pregnancy and impact on pregnancy outcomes. More recently, her research extended to the area of micronutrients and obesity in children in transitional countries.
