15th EMBL|EMBO Science and Society Conference: Foods are us! On eating and becoming

06 Nov 2014 - 07 Nov 2014 - Heidelberg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


The focus of this meeting will be on the impact food has on our body and mind, both from the long-term evolutionary perspective and from the perspective of everyday life. 

The conference programme will highlight the biological and cultural processes through which food both defines us and transforms us. Metaphorically, as well as literally, in what sense are we what we eat?

The main aim of these joint meetings is to present important areas of life science research in a manner accessible to all, and to promote reflection on their implications. At the same time, they should facilitate a broad dialogue between biologists, behavioral and social scientists, students of all disciplines, and members of the public. 

Topics 

o Food, Science and Human Variation

o The Nature and Nurture of Food Preferences

o Food and The Metabolic Environment

o Food, Health and Disease
