Invitation and registration

During the young AGErs Symposium, young scientists in the field of Maillard reaction meet together to share their ideas and research. This event is the perfect opportunity to connect the chemical analytical perspective of Maillard reaction research with the in vivo approach. This year the young AGErs Symposium will be held in Wageningen, organised by the Food Quality & Design Group and Cell Biology & Immunology Group of Wageningen University & Research.

Thursday 12th of July until Friday 13th of July 2018

The concept of the symposium remains mainly unchanged and the key topics will be:
a) Maillard reaction in vivo and its implication in health and disease
b) Maillard reaction in food and plants
c) Molecular background and analytic strategies
We will ask every participant to be an active part of the symposium by either giving a short presentation (15 minutes + 5 minutes discussion) or a flash presentation (5 minutes + 5 minutes discussion). In case we do not assign you for a presentation you will be asked to bring a poster.

We will contact you directly to request an abstract after your registration.
