15th Vitamin D Workshop begins tomorrow
Date:6/18/2012

RIVERSIDE, Calif. The University of California, Riverside is hosting the 15th Vitamin D Workshop from June 19 (tomorrow) through June 22, 2012. Held this year at the Intercontinental Hotel, Houston, Texas, the workshop will have about 50 oral presentations and 130 poster presentations.

Because research papers on vitamin D in the past five years have been appearing at the rate of more than 2000 per year, the workshop, which used to be held once every three years, will now be held annually.

"We simply cannot keep up with the field of vitamin D research unless we meet every year," said Anthony Norman, a distinguished professor emeritus of biochemistry and biomedical sciences at UC Riverside, and a member of the two-member Advisory Committee that manages the workshop. "In 2012 we anticipate close to 3,500 papers on the vitamin. The plan therefore is to meet annually in the 3-4 days immediately preceding the US Endocrine meetings. This way, scientists get to attend two meetings in one trip."

This year, the workshop anticipates 225 attendees, with representation from more than 27 countries. Attendees typically include chemists, biochemists, physiologists, endocrinologists, and clinicians scientists of all of the disciplines essential to modern research pertaining to the many facets of vitamin D. Topics covered at the workshop range from basic chemistry through molecular biology into immunology, with a strong clinical contingent of researchers studying bone and skin diseases, cancer and nutrition.
