DR TAMÀS FÜLÖP, is Assistant Director of the Age Research Centre and Full Professor within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec, Canada. He is also Head of the Immune Inflammation Laboratory and Medical Director of the Memory Clinic. M.D: From the Unversity of Geneva. His postdoctoral research was in the biochemistry of connective tissues, and his PhD is in immunology and gerontology. His research interest is aging in relation to immunity.
Reader in Exercise and Metabolic Health in the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences at the University of Glasgow. Lead an active multi-disciplinary research group investigating the effects of exercise and diet on the prevention and management of vascular and metabolic diseases from the molecular to the whole-body level. Major research interests include: why certain population groups appear to be particularly susceptible to the adverse effects of a ‘Westernised’ lifestyle, and how lifestyle interventions can modulate this excess risk; the interactions between physical activity, energy balance, body fatness and disease risk; and the mechanisms by which exercise regulates lipoprotein metabolism. Member of the NICE guidelines update committee for prevention of type 2 diabetes, and was member of development groups for the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) guidelines for the prevention and treatment of obesity and for prevention of cardiovascular disease. Past Chair of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Division of Physical Activity for Health and Fellow of BASES. Director of the MSc programme in Sport and Exercise Science & Medicine at the University of Glasgow.
Director of the Center for Human Nutrition. Member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation, the American Association of Physicians, and the National Academies of Sciences (Institute of Medicine).
Senior scientist at the National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research (NIFES), Bergen, Norway working in fish nutrition and developmental biology. National representative in the MC of the COST action, Larvanet, and leader of a number of research projects.
Prof. Akio Inui is the chairman of the department of Psychosomatic Medicine, Kagoshima University Graduate School, Kagoshima Japan. He completed his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees at Kobe University. He is recognized for his studies in elucidating the role of gut-brain peptides such as ghrelin, and his efforts are now focused on the translational research for better understanding and management of human behavioral disorders, including obesity, cancer cachexia, and eating disorders.
Associate Professor at the Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam and Visiting Professor at Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7. Our group is working on unravelling the mechanistic link between diet composition and the development of obesity and diabetes as a first step towards better understanding the pathogenesis of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, focussing on the role of the brain.
