The Universities of Trieste, Udine and SISSA are organizing the 2nd PhD Students Conference of the Alps-Adriatic Rectors’ Conference (AARC), entitled From Food to Health.

The Conference will take place in Trieste from the 28th - 30th  August 2017 with the aim of sharing knowledge, ideas and experiences among the PhD Students of the Alps-Adriatic area Universities. 
The programme will provide time for 6 keynote lectures, poster sessions and oral presentations of selected contributions by the PhD students. The thought behind the general topic is to consider an ideal path leading from Food to Health (i.e. nutrition, nutraceutics, nutrigenomics, natural products and health, metabolomics and other omics,  the microbiome, molecular oncology, precision medicine, biomaterials, biotechnology, traceability,  biodiversity etc…), through scientific relevant issues (societal impact of biomedical technologies) and to finally understanding how to transfer all this knowledge not only to scientists and experts, but also to a broad audience (scientific communication). 
Deadline to submit the abstracts: 31st of July.
The selected PhD students will have to cover their travel expenses and accommodation costs (at special prices), while lunches and coffee-breaks will be offered by the organizing universities.
