Conference Budapest 2007
The International Conference on "Early nutrition programming and health outcomes in later life: obesity and beyond" attracted over 250 scientists from over 30 countries around the world. European scientists were well represented but there were also many from the US, Australia, Japan, the Middle East and Russia. The conference was a satellite of the European Congress on Obesity and so considered in particular the long term programming effects which might contribute to obesity in later life. Basic scientific research, data from epidemiological studies and clinical trial results were all presented during the programme.
