About the conference
Entitled ‘Vitamin D and Human Health: From the Gamete to the Grave’, this conference will bring together international experts in the vitamin D field to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest clinical evidence relating to the effects of vitamin D on human health throughout the life course.
Our meeting has two aims. First, we will create a forum for clinical trialists, epidemiologists and health services researchers to meet and forge new collaborations, with the potential to advance the field by the establishment of new consortia for individual patient data meta-analysis. Second, we will provide practicing clinicians, public health professionals, nutritionists and policy-makers with a state-of-the-art overview of the latest findings from clinical research in this rapidly evolving field to inform their day-to-day practice.
We anticipate that this event will attract a large international audience of vitamin D researchers and interested clinicians: our venue will accommodate 400 delegates. A call for abstracts for oral/poster presentation was announced in July 2013, and a list of invited speakers who have confirmed their attendance appears below.
We look forward to welcoming you to London.
