Fifty years ago the Division of Human Nutrition was established at Wageningen University, as the first academic program in Human Nutrition in the Netherlands. To celebrate this event, the division will organize a scientific symposium.
Top keynote speakers:
Kevin Hall, Section Chief: Integrative Physiology Section, Laboratory of Biological Modelling, National Institute of Health, Bethesda, USA
Kathryn Dewey, Distinguished Professor Maternal and Child Nutrition, Department of Nutrition, University of Davis, USA
Boyd Swinburn, Professor of Population Nutrition and Global Health, University of Auckland, New Zealand
David Nabarro, Professor of Global Health, Imperial College London, United Kingdom
The day will include pitches by rising stars of our Division, presenting cutting-edge results from our own Division. Moreover, we will challenge you to discuss hot topics in nutrition, and test whether you can discern fake nutrition news from real nutrition news.
The day will be closed by Rector Magnificus Arthur Mol, together with our special guest, the State Secretary for Health, Welfare and Sport, Paul Blokhuis.
