Food for Thought

The Alison Douglas Summer School 2013 on satiety will be held on an island in the Chiemsee (Germany) 14.-18. July 2013

The Alison Douglas Summer School is a new initiative for Early Career Researchers, who are members of the British Society for Neuroendocrinology (BSN) and/or are working on FP7 funded food- and feeding-related EC projects. The meeting is open to non tenured researchers in food-related research and will be held 14th-18th July 2013 at Frauenwörth, a small island in Bavaria's Chiemsee, Germany.

Alison Douglas, then chair of BSN, tragically died of cancer in 2012. The Summer School bears her name in recognition of her commitment to career development for younger members of the community, and will be jointly funded by the BSN and collaborating FP7 funded EC projects.

The Summer School will prepare the next generation of experienced researchers, and will facilitate networking and nurture Europe-wide collaboration. Internationally leading researchers, as well as experts in science communication, will provide overview and discuss their work and future challenges in an informal, interactive format. The 5 day programme covers major topics in hunger and satiety research, technical workshops, data blitz and posters sessions and a number of plenary lectures and open forum discussions. The initiative is a unique event which brings together several FP7 funded feeding and satiety related projects: Full4Health, NeuroFAST, SATIN, EurOCHIP and MAITRE. Speakers and instructors include Prof. Roger Adan & Dr. Paul Smeets (University Utrecht), Prof. Jens Bruening (University of Cologne, DE), Prof. Johannes Hebebrand & Dr. Özgür Albayrak (University Essen), Dr. Sebastien Bouret (Universite de Lille II), Prof. Julian Mercer (University of Aberdeen), Prof. Thorkild Sørensen (University of Copenhagen & Institute of Clinical Health), Dr. Giles Yeo and Prof. Fiona Gribble (University of Cambridge, UK), Prof. Margriet Westerterp-Plantenga (University of Maastricht, NL). The MAITRE project will send a senior journalist for media coaching.
