13th International Symposium on Carotenoids, 6-11 January 2002, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

> Back to Calendar

This symposium aims to maintain the tradition of an up-to-date survey of progress in all aspects of the carotenoid field. It will provide a forum to report and discuss those areas that are of particular topical interest and where the most significant advances have been made. Presentations are planned by those carotenoid scientists who have made the greatest contributions to these advances.

Plenary lectures will address photosynthesis; new colorants: from concept to commercialization; carotenoids and photodetection; the Golden Rice Project; carotenoids, vitamin A, and nutrition; carotenoids and muscular degeneration; genetic engineering of plants for carotenoid content; genetic manipulation of plants; and carotenoid modulation of drug-metabolizing enzymes.

Approximately 250-300 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend the symposium.

For further information, contact Dr. John S. Bertram, Cancer Research Center, University of Hawaii, 1236 Lauhala Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, USA; E-mail: [email protected]; Tel.: +1 808 586 2757; Fax: +1 808 586 2970.
