The Nestlé Nutrition Institute is sponsoring the 2012 International Biochemistry of Exercise Conference (IBEC). The event is the premier research meeting devoted to exercise physiology and biochemistry in health and disease, making it one of the most important events in sports nutrition.
The meeting, which will take place in Stockholm in June, will highlight important themes in the wide field of biochemistry of exercise, presenting the latest evidence.
This year the biochemical basis of fatigue symposium will have a special focus on exercise biochemistry and physiology in memory of Eric Hultman, following his sad demise in March 2011.
Over five decades, Eric made significant contributions in the area of muscle metabolism and fatigue through his seminal and active research. During this impactful session, speakers will be taking the science beyond Eric’s foundations to highlight major recent advances and controversies relating to this field.
Following the event, review papers will be published by The Journal of Physiology and made available to NNI members via the NNI website.
